POLICE in Ipswich are trying to trace a man who has been missing for nearly a week.

Craig Smith has not been seen since Saturday evening. He had been staying at a homeless shelter in Fore Hamlet but staff reported their concerns to police when he did not return on Sunday.

The 37-year-old is described as white, of thin build, about 6ft 2ins with cropped dark brown hair, a dark beard and a scar on his right cheek. He was last seen wearing a blue Nike hoodie, a dark grey woollen coat, jeans, canvas shoes and a white gold wedding band.

He was also carrying a camel-coloured messenger bag and a carrier bag full of clothes.

Mr Smith has been known to sleep rough on benches around the Chantry Park and Gippeswyk Park areas.
