CONCERNS are growing for the welfare of a man who has reportedly been missing for nearly a month.

Joshua Joyce, 30, was reported missing from the Manningtree area on September 24, but he has not been seen since September 13.

He is described as being white and 6ft 5ins tall with cropped, brown hair and a beard.

Essex Police officers are now appealing for the public's help after having exhausted all other lines of enquiry.

A spokesman for the force said: "We’re worried about him and need to find him to make sure he’s okay.

"If you’ve seen him or have any information about where he is please call us on 101.

"If you’re with him or it’s an emergency please call 999."
