Police are searching for a Norfolk man who has gone missing from his home.

Glynn Moughton, 56, was last seen at an address in Pigeon Street, Walpole St Andrew, west Norfolk, at about 12.30pm yesterday (Friday).

Police, who scrambled the force helicopter, in the hunt for Mr Moughton, said it was unusual for Glynn to go missing and are increasingly worried about his safety.

He is described as white, 6ft 2in, of medium to large build, with grey hair.

He was last seen wearing a black jumper, brown trousers and black boots.

Police appealed anyone who has seen him to call them on 101.
