The 46-year-old went missing from Scarborough on Wednesday May 8 and police believe that Peter may be sleeping rough so may appear more dishevelled than in his pictures.

A reliable sighting was made on Monday May 12 in the Burniston area. A man resembling Peter was seen walking next to Burniston Motors Garage, near to the junction of the A171 and Limestone Road. However, despite extensive searches of the area, police were unable to locate him.
