WINCHESTER police are growing increasingly worried a man missing since Monday.

Leslie Hughes, 51, from Hyde Gate, was last seen leaving his home at about 7am.

The police say it is out of character for Mr Hughes, who suffers with depression, to go missing.

Mr Hughes, who is also known as Lee , is described as: six feet tall. Thin build, with grey hair, a thin face with front teeth missing, speaks with a Liverpool accent and is likely to be wearing a green mac.

Anyone with any information or who may have seen Mr Hughes since July 7 is asked to call Winchester police on 101.
