John Montgomery, 68, was last seen by a caller to his home in the Aldwick area of the town at 7pm, police said.

Police were alerted when he did not answer his door on Saturday morning.

Indications are that he may have left the property on Friday evening and did not return.

Police have now said they understand he travelled by train to London Victoria.

A new image of him has been released by police on social media.

Sussex Police said in a tweet this afternoon: “We’ve released this new image of missing Bognor Regis man John Montgomery, who we understand travelled by train to London Victoria.

“Specifically, he has links to the Peckham area.
