People have been urged to check their sheds and outbuildings for a vulnerable missing man.
Officers have deployed a number of resources to help with the search operation, including assistance from Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue Team, two drones and police dogs.
Mr Boyd was last seen on Maple Road in Downham Market at 7.30pm on Tuesday evening.
He is described as white, approximately 5ft 9, of slim build with grey receding hair and is believed to be wearing a green coat, tan coloured trousers and brown shoes.
Police are asking people in and around the Downham Market area to check their sheds and outbuildings as he could be seeking shelter.
Chief Inspector Rob Button said: "We are concerned for John’s welfare given the circumstances. He has been missing for more than 24 hours now and given the temperatures outside, along with the fact he is vulnerable, he could be feeling quite scared.
“We have now released images of John in the clothing we believe he is currently wearing and would therefore urge members of the public to keep an eye out for him.”
