POLICE in Stroud are concerned for the welfare of a man who was reported missing last week.

Tom Bruder, 58, was last seen in the Lord John pub on Monday (April 28).

All of his belongings were found at his home address on London Road in the town and his disappearance has been described as 'out of character,' prompting officers to make an appeal to the public to be on the lookout for him.

Address checks and other inquiries remain ongoing but police are urging anyone who can help to come forward.

Tom is described as white, of slim build, with receding, unkempt brown hair and a beard. When he was last seen he was wearing a flat cap and brown zip-up jacket.

Anyone who sees Tom or knows of his whereabouts are asked by police to call 101, or 999 if appropriate, and quote incident 218 of May 1.
