Members of the public are being encouraged to join the search for a missing Norfolk Police officer.
Adrian Porter, known as Ady, was last seen at his home address in Holt at around 8am on Monday, April 29.
Now, 24 hours after the 46-year-old's disappearance, a search involving his Norfolk Police colleagues and the public is due to take place around his home town.
Anyone who wishes to take part in the search is asked to be at Holt police station at 10am this morning (Tuesday).
Simon Bailey, chief constable of Norfolk Police, said: “He has now been missing for 24 hours and we are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

“I have asked members of the public who would like to help us with the search to be at Holt police station at 10am and we will coordinate their activities from there.”
Mr Bailey is also appealing to farmers and game keepers to check outbuildings, woods or copses for the bicycle Mr Porter is believed to have left home on – a light green coloured Genesis model.
