POLICE are trying to trace a missing Worcester man who is travelling around the country.

Stephen Naish, aged 28, went missing on Thursday, June 28 and it is believed he has been visiting Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

It is also thought he has since been in Gloucester, Oxford, Banbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, Rugby and Coventry and may be attending music festivals.

Mr Naish is about five-feet 10ins tall, of medium build and has shoulder-length, curly hair which is dyed blonde and often tied back into a ponytail.

He is thought to be carrying a large blue rucksack and has a tent with him.

Inspector Janet Heritage said: "We and Stephen's family are concerned about his wellbeing and want to see him return to Worcester. We would like to hear from anyone who has spotted or met Stephen.

"While he is generally good tempered, he can be volatile and we recommend that if anyone does spot him they do not confront him but contact either West Mercia Police or their local force.

"Stephen has an interest in music and will often carry an acoustic guitar; he has been known to busk in the past. We also think he is travelling around the region attending music festivals."

Any sightings of Mr Naish can be reported via the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
