"A team of officers are working hard to trace him. If anybody has any information about William’s whereabouts, please get in touch."

William is described as white, of slim build with short brown hair and a ginger beard. He was last seen wearing black-laced work shoes, black trousers and a blue polo top with a black jacket.
