He was last seen wearing a black hooded top, a black t-shirt, black Ellesse jogging bottoms and black Vans trainers.

He was also carrying with him a black Poker Stars rucksack and is believed to have had black sunglasses with him.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Jon Shaw, of Abingdon CID, said: “It has now been six months since Doug was last seen, and naturally, his family and his partner are very distressed at his disappearance, that was completely out of character for him."

He added: “We had a possible sighting reported of Doug leaving his car on foot in the general direction of Aldworth, but there have been no confirmed sightings of him."

People with information are urged to call 101, quoting reference number 43210168920.
