POLICE are appealing for help to find a man who went missing in Bromsgrove.

Ben Butler was last seen at 11.15am at an address in Barnsley Hall Drive on Sunday, December 30.

The 27-year-old, originally from Evesham, is white, 6ft 1ins, slim, with dark brown short hair. He has a tattoo of a face on his right arm.

He was last seen wearing dark blue jeans, a light blue hooded top, a black jacket and black shoes. He had a small backpack with him.

On the day of his disappearance he was due to go shopping and visit another address in Bromsgrove. He was expected to return to Barnsley Hall Drive at around 7pm, but did not arrive.

Mr Butler requires regular medication, which he does not have with him.

Police say he has been missing before, being found at various locations across the country, and it maybe he is using public transport to get around.

Inspector Sharon Cannings said: "We are worried Ben may be sleeping rough and as the weather has turned particularly cold this week, it obviously increases our concern for his health.

"As he is not taking his medication we are also worried that his health will be deteriorating with every further day that goes by.

"We are eager to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen him either walking the streets or sleeping outside."

Anyone or knows where Mr Butler is, or who thinks they have seen him since he went missing, is asked to call officers on 101.
