“Christmas Day will mark a week since his disappearance and we are clearly concerned with each day that passes.

“He is an elderly man who requires medication and I would call on local people to come forward with any information, no matter how small or relevant they may think it is.

“Numerous searches have been undertaken by officers and our enquiries are ongoing across the area.

“Mr Hallas is described as white, around 5ft 5ins tall, clean-shaven, frail and with whispy grey hair.
