Search for missing Newark man extended to woodland and section of River Trent as he is not seen for more than three weeks
A search for a missing Newark man has been extended to woodland and a section of the River Trent.
Michal Krysztofcyzk has been missing from Cross Street, Newark, for more than three weeks and police are growing concerned for his welfare.
He was reported missing on November 18 and was last confirmed to be seen on November 7 in the Sleaford Road area.
Specialist police underwater search and rescue teams are continuing to search the River Trent today (Friday).
Searches are also being carried out by police and specialist volunteer teams in woodland areas.
Officers are continuing to speak to witnesses.
Michal, 27, who is a Polish national, is white, of slim build and has a bald head.
He previously suffered burns that left him with distinctive scarring to his face, ears and hands.
He was last seen wearing the clothing as pictured in the CCTV image.
Detective Sergeant Ricky Ellis, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We have had a number of reported sightings since then which we have thoroughly looked into but they have not been confirmed sightings.
"We're continuing our searches for Michal and we're re-appealing to anyone who has seen him or who has any information about his whereabouts — no matter how small — to get in touch with us.
"We're growing increasingly concerned for Michal's welfare as we know he hasn’t got his mobile phone with him and there hasn't been any activity on his bank account.
"We have been in close contact with Michal’s family to support them and ensure they are aware of our activity during what must be a heart-breaking time for them.
"We'd particularly like to hear from members of the local Polish community in Newark who may have information as Michal was well known."
If you have seen Michal since November 7 or have information to assist the inquiry, please contact Notts Police on 101 quoting incident number 350 of November 18.
