THE search for a missing pensioner has entered its third week.

Police are urging the public to call 999 immediately if they see 68-year-old David Cairns, who hasn't been seen since October 26. 

David, 68, left home a few minutes after 8am to take his car to Broadbridge Heath Garage on the Lawson Hunt Industrial Park.

He dropped off the car at 8.45am and left as it was going to take a while to deal with.

He has not been seen since, either by his family or the garage, who have both tried to contact him.

People living in and around Horsham are being asked to check sheds, outbuildings and infrequently visited parts of their property.

David is white, 6', of chubby build with short white/grey hair and wears glasses. He was wearing a grey sweatshirt, blue jeans and possibly a navy blue sleeveless puffer jacket.

Anyone who sees him or knows of his whereabouts is asked to dial 999 quoting the reference number 1120 of 26/10.
