Police continue their efforts to find Mark Westall, with every avenue being explored to try and trace his whereabouts.
44 year old Mark Westall, of North Lonsdale Road, Ulverston was last seen at 9.30 pm on Monday 23rd January 2012 on North Lonsdale Road in Ulverston.
Last week the North West Diving Team from Lancaster were in the Ulverston area, searching a stretch of water to the north of the railway line in an effort to try and trace anything which may lead to Mark's whereabouts.
Sergeant Chris O'Hare said: "We are utilising any opportunity and search method to try and find any trace of Mark's whereabouts. Our aim is to reunite him with his family and would urge Mark to get in contact to let us all know that he is ok.
“We have been advising members of the public and the local community that Mark's appearance may have changed and that he may have lost weight and could have grown a beard by now. However, one distinctive thing about Mark that will not change is his colourful tattoo on his left arm of a yellow and black spaceship. We continue to appeal to the community to be vigilant, keep Mark in mind and if you believe you’ve seen him anywhere, please contact us on 101 immediately.
“We remain in close contact with Mark’s family and are supporting them as best we can. Mark, if you are reading or listening to this, please contact your family to let them know you are safe. You are not in any trouble – your family are extremely worried about you and want to know that you are safe.”
Mark is described as white, 5' 6'' tall, and when he was last seen he was of a stocky build with dark brown, collar length wavy hair. He was last seen wearing an orange jacket and blue trousers, with a light coloured sweatshirt worn under his jacket.
If you think you have seen Mark or have any information about his whereabouts, please contact Ulverston police on 101 immediately.
