Appeal after Henfield man reported missing
Concern about the welfare of a missing man from Henfield led to a public appeal for information.
At the time the police statement was released last week David Payne, 57 had last been seen by his sister on July 15 but he was not reported missing to police until July 20.
He was described as white, 5’9″, of medium to stocky build, clean shaven and with receding straight white hair.
It was thought he might be wearing a blue shirt bearing a BikeMend logo, reflecting his job as a cycle repairer, together with dark blue combat-style trousers.
His silver Ford Fusion car had been located in the Eastbourne area but his yellow Nomad bicycle had not. Mr Payne was said to be a keen cyclist and used to long-distance rides.
Anyone who had seen David or had any knowledge about his whereabouts was asked to e mail email@example.com or phone 101, quoting serial 1883 of 20/07.
At the time of the District Post going to press no further reports of his whereabouts had been received.
