The aunt of a Blackpool man who has been missing for more than four weeks today made a desperate plea for him to come home.
Calum Terras has not been seen since he left his town centre home, on Fleet Street, on January 5 to get his hair cut.
Despite scouring CCTV in the resort and deploying a search helicopter and divers in the hunt for him, police have found no trace of Mr Terras, who turned 28 last week.
Police, who say he may have travelled to Manchester, have now released new pictures of him as part of a fresh appeal to find him.
His aunt, Lesley Fallah, 51, of Henderson Avenue, said Mr Terras has been battling with depression for 14 months.
She added: “The police have gone to a lot of effort, but there haven’t been any sightings. It’s a mystery.
“There has not been any activity on his bank account or on social media – obviously that is worrying. It’s like he went out and went up in a puff of smoke. We still carry hope but as a family we just feel in limbo – we are stuck.”
Mrs Fallah appealed for anyone who knows where her nephew is to get in touch, adding: “We want to know he’s safe. We love him and miss him and want to get him the help he needs.”
Det Sgt Kathryn Riley, of Blackpool Police, said: “It has been a month now since Calum was last seen and his family and friends are keen for him to return home safe and well.
“We would urge anyone who may have seen Calum or knows of his current whereabouts to contact us as soon as possible with any information that they may have.
“We would also urge him, if he sees this appeal, to make contact with family or friends or with the police to let us know that you are safe.”
He is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall, of medium build with collar length dark brown hair.
He has facial hair and wears glasses. He was last seen wearing a three-quarter length military jacket and white trainers.
