POLICE are appealing for help to find missing Gloucester man Matiss Lapins.

Matiss, 22, was last seen in Cheltenham on the afternoon of Sunday, July 27 and his disappearance is described as completely out of character.

He failed to turn up at work in Tewkesbury on Monday and officers are particularly concerned as Matiss had no phone and very little money on him when he went missing.

Anyone who knows where he is urged to call the police straight away.

Matiss is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall, of proportionate build, with short, dark brown hair and a beard. He has a tattoo of a large black owl with green eyes on his left shoulder.

He was last seen wearing a dark coloured t-shirt, dark jeans and trainers.

UPDATE: Officers have now received information showing that Matiss has travelled north and has been accessing his bank account this week.

The appeal is now closed and police would like to thank everyone who shared it.
