The 44-year-old had last been seen at around 4pm on Tuesday, February 6 in the Nacton village area of Suffolk and was reported missing to police two days later.

Fresh information has now come in from a member of the public who reported seeing a man fitting Mr Moore’s description wearing a plain white T-shirt and grey jogging bottoms that were muddy and wet in Church Lane, near to St Martin’s Church, in Nacton at around 6.25pm on February 6.

Today, officers along with teams from Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) have conducted extensive searches in the Church Lane and Shore Lane areas of Nacton.

A drone is also being flown over the vicinity in a bid to find clues, and police are carrying out house to house enquiries.

Mr Moore is described as white, 6ft tall, stocky and with mousy hair.

He was wearing white trainers, grey jogging bottoms and a distinctive Dolce & Gabbana grey hooded top with pink flowers on it when he was last seen.

Mr Moore was carrying an Apple iPhone 6 with a Tech 21 transparent/white silicone case.

He is also believed to have been wearing an Omega Seamaster Chronograph professional watch with a black dial steel case and bracelet bearing the serial number 86673098.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Whilst the investigation to locate Paul is being dealt with as a missing person inquiry, the Major Investigation Team are supervising and are working to establish the circumstances around Paul’s disappearance.”

A man in his 30s from the Ipswich area who was arrested on February 25 in connection with the inquiry was released under investigation while the probe continues.

Suffolk Constabulary is appealing for anyone with information about Mr Moore’s whereabouts, or who may have seen any of his clothing or belongings in the area, to call 101.
