Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man from Bude who has been missing since Saturday (December 28).

Ricky Gamage was last seen leaving The Venue in the town at around 8.35pm on December 28.

He was wearing a blue beanie hat, a khaki green North Face hooded jacket, a grey 'Venue' logo t-shirt, black skinny jeans with a tear on the left thigh, and black Dr Martin boots.

Ricky, who is 21 years old, is around 6ft 2in tall with dark hair, a dark goatee beard and green eyes, and has a sleeve tattoo down his right arm.

Police said there have been a number of unconfirmed potential sightings of Ricky since Saturday, including in Barnstaple.
