Police believe he may still be in the Swinton area or heading towards Newark.

Dougie also has several allergies that mean he must carry an epi-pen at all times, which he currently does not have with him.

Officers also believe he may have links to Neward, Hull and Leicestershire.

Anyone who sees Douglas is asked not to approach him, but to instead call 101 quoting incident number 454 of October 2015.
