POLICE forces across England and Wales are today on the lookout for missing pub landlord John O'Sullivan.

Irishman Mr O'Sullivan, who ran the Brewery Tap in Ipswich for two years until August last year, went missing from a Clacton club on March 3.

The week's takings of £6,000 till float and some stock were discovered to be missing from The Tavern club at Holland-on-Sea, Essex.

Mr O'Sullivan has not been seen since, and today the Evening Star can reveal that the scope of Essex Police's search has been widened, and his details have been circulated to officers nationwide.

A spokesman for Essex Police said today: "Officers in police forces across England and Wales are being circulated details of this man, via the police's national computer. As soon as someone traces him, we will be alerted."

Kathy Holmes director of the Waveney Pub Company, which runs the Essex club said Mr O'Sullivan disappeared after the company had paid to accommodate him in a hotel for a fortnight while he stood in for the manager at Holland on Sea.
