DETECTIVES have widened their search for a missing Stockton man to Sunderland.
Cleveland Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man who has not been seen since Sunday, September 30.
Mark Anthony Leah, 23, was last seen in Middlesbrough town centre at around noon on that day.
He is described as white, about 5ft 6, slim build, with short blonde hair.
He has distinctive tattoos on his legs, a black panther on his right leg and a sabre-toothed tiger on his left leg and was wearing a grey tracksuit and an army-style camouflage jacket.
At the time of his disappearance, Mark was living in the Stockton area, but has connections in Wearside.
Anyone with information should phone 101.
