Mr Scammel suffers from Bipolar disorder and has no medication with him.

He is described as 5' 3", of slight build with dark brown hair and he has a moustache.

He is believed to be wearing a wax jacket, black jogging bottoms, a maroon sweater, green wellington boots and carrying a green rucksack.

It is high time that anyone suffering from any form of mental disorder (forgive me if I've termed that incorrectly) is made to wear a tracking device.

So many people go missing and families are being left wondering where there relative is - there is no closure for them. A tracking device would stop this and they are easily obtained.
