John is white, 5ft 9ins, of medium build with grey hair. Sussex Police said he is very frail and “may appear drunk”.

Given the weekend’s inclement weather, police believe he may have sought shelter somewhere and have appealed to people in the area to check sheds, garages or other outbuildings.

Anyone who sees him or who knows of his whereabouts is asked to dial 999 immediately quoting serial 501 of 14/12.
