Inspector Ben Stephens said: "We are growing increasingly concerned for Steven’s welfare having spent several weeks investigating every line of enquiry we can find.

“We are appealing to all members of the community to check their dash cam footage if they were driving in the Coalport vicinity on Friday, March 19.

"We are particularly interested in anybody that saw a male carrying a wooden stool/small chair on this date or if they have come across a similar item whilst out and about in the Coalport/Ironbridge area. We believe that Steven had a similar item in his possession when he went missing.

“Please contact 101 if you can help with our enquires.”
