Main article content
Officers have released CCTV images as part of their search for missing Portsmouth man Dean Cassell.
The 51-year-old was last seen in person at around 3.30pm on Thursday 26 September in the Widley Court Drive area of Cosham.
He was reported missing three days later and has not been seen or heard from since.
We have now released CCTV images of a man we believe to be Dean, from the evening of Thursday 26 September.
They show him withdrawing money from the NatWest ATM in West Street, Havant, and later, on the platform of Nutbourne railway station in West Sussex.
We would like people to take a good look at the images. Does it remind of someone you saw at around that time? Perhaps you have seen someone matching this man’s description and clothing more recently?
We are also appealing for motorists who drove on the A259 between Havant and Chichester between 6pm and 8pm on Thursday 26 September to check their dashcam footage.
Officers would also like motorists to check their footage if they drove on the same road between Chichester Bypass and Bognor Regis, between 1pm and 4pm on Friday 4 October. This follows an unconfirmed sighting of Dean.
He is described as:
• 5ft 9ins tall
• Very slim
• No hair
• Normally has no facial hair, but is likely to have not shaved recently
Dean was last seen wearing a dark puffer-style jacket, pale blue jeans, dark trainers and a black backpack with thick straps.
He is known to visit Havant, Waterlooville, Fareham, Chichester and Brighton, so we are asking people with connections to these areas to spread this appeal.
If you have seen Dean, please call Hampshire police on 101, quoting the reference number 44190347803.
Dial 999 in the event of any emergency.
