“Mr Balding is known to visit caravan parks in the Lincolnshire and Devon and Cornwall areas.
“We would ask the public to take a look at the photograph and contact us if they know where Mr Balding is or if they think they may have seen anyone matching his description.”
Mr Balding is described as white, approximately 6ft tall, of stocky build with a receding hairline closely shaved at the sides. He may have a goatee beard and he wears glasses for reading.
