John visited a cousin in the Brixton area of London between 6 and 8 July, but since leaving his cousin’s house, he has not been seen or heard from and police are now unable to reach him.

John is described as white, of stocky build, 5ft 8in and with shaven ginger hair.

He has a tattoo of a little red devil on his left arm and was last seen wearing casual clothing, like jeans and a t-shirt.
