“He discharged himself from hospital and nobody has seen or heard from him since.

“We are worried because he hasn’t got a phone or any money.”

She added: “We know he could be anywhere, it's like he has vanished into thin air, but we really want people to come forward if they see him.

“We just want to know that he is safe.”
