There is growing concern for a missing 56-year-old man who was last seen nearly a week ago.

Stephen Howlett, 56, was last seen leaving his home in The Diplocks on Wednesday (August 13) shortly after midday and has not been seen since. He is believed to have left in his blue Jaguar.

He is described as white, slim with untidy blond hair and has a tattoo on his left hand.

Wai Lee, missing persons co-orderinator for East Sussex said: "We are concerned for Stephen as we have not been able to make contact with him.

"Anyone who has seen Stephen or knows where he is is asked to contact police as soon as possible via Sussex 101 quoting serial 867 of 13/8."
