Police are appealing for any sightings of 59-year-old Clive Alec-Tebbutt who has failed to return home after finishing work at 12.30pm yesterday.
His disappearance is out of character and the police and his family are extremely concerned for his welfare.
Mr Alec-Tebbutt is 5ft 11in tall, of slim build and is quite bald on top with hair at the sides. He is believed to be wearing a blue jacket, possibly with a high-vis over the top, and blue combat trousers.
He lives in Hutton Drive in Brentwood and police believe he is likely to still be in the area.
However, he does have access to a car – a silver Ford Fiesta, registration FL11 FEM. If anyone believes they have seen Mr Alec-Tebbutt or his car they are asked to call Brentwood Police Station with any information on 101.
