A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: "Peter Brown remains missing.

"Enquiries are ongoing and police are investigating all possible sightings."

Peter is described as white, 6ft 1in tall, of muscular/athletic build, unshaven, with greying brown hair.

However, police believe he may be sleeping rough so his appearance may be more dishevelled than in pictures.

He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie underneath a blue waist length jacket, loose grey cotton jogging bottoms, and blue Nike trainers.

Police believe he may be wearing a blue baseball bat and could have changed into blue jeans.

Since his disappearance there has been a huge response in the community to try and find the 46-year-old, with many people conducting searches of the area.

Natalie Brown, Peter's wife, has thanked everyone for their support and is "absolutely overwhelmed by the support of this little community."
