Mrs Nunn, a retired healthcare assistant, said: 'It is mentally exhausting, but I need to get out there and do something. The police say don't give up hope.
'The biggest problem is, when Alan left the house we don't know which way he went.'
Mr Milburn is described as white, 5ft 8in tall and of medium build.
He has short grey hair and at the time of his disappearance
he was wearing blue jeans or black cords, a black hooded anorak and brown/black Sketcher trainers.

Mrs Nunn said: 'His confidence is really low with his anxiety. I don't think he would be able to get on a bus or train.'
Describing Mr Milburn, she added: 'He is a very gentle person. You couldn't argue with Alan if you tried.
'He is a beautiful person inside and out and doesn't have a bad bone in his body.'
