A police search is under way for a detective reported missing from home.

Detective Constable John Wilson, from Ecclesfield, was last seen by his wife when she left their home to go to work on Wednesday.

DC Wilson, aged 52, who works for South Yorkshire Police in Sheffield, is ‘known to be worried about issues at work’ although no further details have been released.

It is thought that DC Wilson may be in the Norfolk area and may have his family pet - a brown Labrador - with him.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “South Yorkshire Police is seeking urgent help from the public in tracing one of its own officers who has not been seen for more than 24 hours.

“John Wilson, a Detective Constable who is based at Sheffield, was last seen by his wife on Wednesday morning when she left their Ecclesfield home for work.

“The 52-year-old is known to be worried about issues at work, and the force is becoming increasingly concerned for his safety.

“It is believed John is in his blue BMW car and may well have the family pet with him - a brown Labrador.”

DC Wilson is white, 6ft 2ins tall, slim with a shaved head and very gaunt face.

He often wears a silver earring.
