Police in Sussex are concerned for the welfare of Shoreham man Robert Golden, 58, who has failed to return from a holiday in Spain.
He flew on his own to Seville on 5 November and had bought a return flight on Easyjet to return on 19 November. However Robert, who has a passion for trekking, didn’t board the return flight and hasn’t been in touch with his brother or his colleagues in London where he works in IT.
His brother Barry said: “I’m really worried. I’m really missing him and want to see him back home.
“Robert loves walking and the outdoors. It is worrying that he can be away for that length of time and not use his bank cards. The last time was 10 November somewhere in Spain. I wonder what he is living on?
“I would appeal for him to get in touch.”
Detective Inspector Rob Walker said: “We are getting increasingly concerned for Robert. He was seen by neighbours at the beginning of November leaving his home with a large backpack.
“He is a keen walker and mentioned to a friend about treking to Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz and Jerez for about 10 to 12 days. However he failed to return to work as expected and he was reported missing on 23 November. We are in liaison with the British Embassy and are issuing the appeal to the media in Spain.
“I would ask Robert to get in touch to say he is safe and well. I would also urge anyone who may recognise him from his travels in Spain to contact Sussex Police on +44 1273 475432, quoting serial 804 of 23/11.”
