The police are appealing for information to help them find a man caught on CCTV in the Finchley Road before going missing.

Phil Nicol was last seen by his partner on Thursday, March 1, at their home in Peckham. He has not made contact with friends or family members since.

CCTV footage shows Mr Nicol visited the O2 Centre in Finchley Road on Saturday, March 3.

He then boarded a number 13 bus at 9.50am, getting off at the junction of Fortune Green Lane and Finchley Road.

A Met spokesman said: “Officers and the family of Mr Nicol are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.”

The 47-year-old was wearing a red waterproof outdoor jacket with grey shoulders, and blue jeans. He was also carrying a dark-coloured rucksack.

Officers are appealing to anybody who might have seen Mr Nicol in the last two weeks to contact them right away.

Anyone who may have seen Mr Nicol is asked to contact Southwark Police via 101, or call or text the charity Missing People on 116 000, quoting 18MIS008696.
