Shoeburyness: Concern Over Missing Man
Concern is mounting for a man from Shoeburyness who failed to return home from work.
20-year-old Daniel Bridge went to work in London on Thursday morning (12th April), but never came home.
He has not been in touch with family, which is described as being extremely out of character.
It is thought he is in the Shoebury area.
Daniel is white, about 5ft 10ins and of stocky build.
He has facial stubble and very dark, cropped hair with a pattern shaved in.
He was last seen wearing blue army trousers, a black t-shirt and a black coat with a hood.
Inspector Les Hawkins said: "Daniel does not appear to have made any preparations to stay away from home for a prolonged period so we are growing increasingly anxious about his whereabouts. I am keen to hear from anyone who may have information to help with our enquiries."
