Officers searching for a missing Rugeley man have released a further photograph in a bid to locate him.
Stephen Greatrix, aged 45, from Chase Side Drive has not been seen since around 2pm on Monday 21 April.
Stephen is described as white, 5ft 10ins, slim build and has short mousey hair. He has a tanned complexion and green eyes. It’s believed he may be wearing a long black sleeved top and a grey Craghoppers top.
Since he was reported missing on Tuesday 22 April, officers have carried out extensive searches of Cannock Chase after they located Stephen’s car parked on the outskirts of the town.
Officers have been assisted by colleagues from the Air Support Unit, Dog Support Unit, and Staffordshire Search and Rescue Team. Sadly, these searches have proven negative.
Chief Inspector Steve Morrey, Cannock Chase Local Policing Team Commander, said: “We are continuing to make inquiries to locate Stephen. It is now five days since he was last seen, which is really concerning.
“Acting on information we have been given, including possible sightings, we have carried out structured searches of certain areas of the Chase.
“As part of our inquiries we have issued media and social media appeals and we’re really grateful for everyone’s help to spread the word of Stephen’s disappearance. Leaflets are also being handed out across the area.
“We have been keeping Stephen’s family updated throughout our search and remain in touch with them as our inquiries continue.
“We’d like to directly appeal to anyone who uses the Chase - bike riders, dog walkers, runners and horse riders, to keep an eye out for him and contact us immediately if you have any information.”
Anyone with information on Stephen’s whereabouts is asked to contact police immediately on 101, quoting Staffordshire Police incident number 446 of April 22.
