Police in Stowmarket are appealing for help from members of the public in their bid to trace a man from Coddenham who has been reported missing after walking out of work.

Matthew Landers, 40, of High Street, Coddenham has not been seen since 10am yesterday morning.

Mr Landers attended his work address in London Road, Capel St Mary, but walked out leaving his car at the premises.

It is understood he walked off in the direction of Ipswich.

A police spokeswoman said: “Matthew has not been in contact with his friends or family and this is considered out of character for him.

“Matthew is said to have been feeling down recently and police are therefore very concerned for his welfare.”

Checks are being carried out today to try to locate Mr Landers, but police are very keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him or knows of his whereabouts.

He is described as white, 5’7’’ tall, of slim build with dark brown collar length hair; it is thought he was wearing a navy blue jacket, blue jeans and dark trainers.

Anyone who has seen Mr Landers or know of his whereabouts is asked to call the duty sergeant at Stowmarket Police on 101.
