POLICE are appealing for help to trace missing Gloucester man Matiss Lapins.

Matiss, 22, was last seen in Cheltenham on Sunday (July 27) afternoon and his disappearance is described as completely out of character.

He failed to turn up at work in Tewkesbury on Monday and officers are particularly concerned as Matiss had no phone and very little money on him when he went missing.

Anyone who knows where he is should call police straight away.

Matiss is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall, of proportionate build, with short, dark brown hair and a beard. He has a tattoo of a large black owl with green eyes on his left shoulder.

He was last seen wearing a dark coloured t-shirt, dark jeans and trainers.

If you can help please ring 101, quoting incident 64 of July 28.
