POLICE are asking for the public's help to find a missing Evesham man last seen five days ago.

Ben Butler, 27, was last seen at a home in Bromsgrove at 11.15am on Sunday (December 30) before he was due to go shopping and visit another house later in the day.

He was expected to return to the house on Barnsley Hall Drive for 7pm that evening but did not arrive. He is described as 6ft 1 tall of slim build with short dark brown hair and has a tattoo on his right arm.

Before leaving the house Ben was wearing dark blue jeans, a black jacket, light blue hooded top, black shoes and had a small backpack with him.

It is understood Ben is on various medication for health issues and will not have had access to his prescriptions since he went missing.

Ben has been missing before and has been found at various locations across the country. Police believe he may be using public transport to get around.

Anyone with information should contact police at Bromsgrove by calling the non-emergency police number 101 as soon as possible.
