Lee Michael Cole was expected to pick his partner up on Saturday morning however he didn't turn up and has not returned home, or responded to calls and texts to his mobile phone.

Lee is white, 5’10” tall and of proportionate build. He has short ginger/grey shaved hair and a distinctive tattoo of two teardrops near his left eye.
