Police are hunting for a man who went missing after a row at a Co-Op where he worked.
Forty-nine year old Robin Prescott, from Burlescombe, Devon, took an early train to Penzance back on December 13th and hasn’t been seen since.
He’s not been seen since and his family are gravely concerned. Police have put out a general appeal to the public to try and find him.
It’s completely out of character for Robin to have gone missing.
He’s thought to have disappeared after a row at his workplace, the Co-Op in Wellington, Somerset.
A police spokesman said: “A man matching Robin’s description was seen getting on the 7.38am train from Taunton to Penzance on that Thursday morning.
“Police found his car abandoned at Taunton railway station.
“Robin is close to his family and is described as being a loner, keeping himself to himself.
“This type of behaviour is out of character and his family and police are becoming increasingly concerned for him.”
His sister Pamela added: “Robin we are concerned for you. Christmas is a time for families to be together.
“You have done nothing wrong and we are missing you. Please phone home or contact the police and let us know you are safe.”
The force spokeswoman added: “The CCTV we’ve broadcast shows Robin at work the day before he disappeared – and later in the same week, going to a betting shop.
“He is believed to have boarded the 7.38am train from Taunton to Penzance on Thursday 13 December.
“We are presently investigating a sighting of a man matching Mr Prescott’s description getting off the train at Liskeard at 9.50am on Thursday 13 December.
“We are calling for the public’s help to find Mr Prescott and are asking people, particularly in the Liskeard area, to look out for him.”
She went on: “Robin Prescott is described as being 5ft 9 inches tall and of slim build. He has fair/greying hair and may be wearing a Co op uniform sweatshirt and black trousers.
“He drives a blue Toyota estate R876PFJ and has connections in the Tiverton and Wellington areas.
“Anyone with any information is asked to call the Police on 101 quoting log number 0758 131212.”
