The 82-year-old, who has vascular dementia, was last seen by neighbours at his home in Leaden Roding at about 11am on Sunday, October 25.

He is thought to have got onto a bus to Chelmsford and then on to Halstead, where the bus driver believes he saw a man matching Mr Wilson’s description get off at the final stop at 1.30pm and walked towards Butler Road.

Officers leading the search also were told that a man, fitting with his description, was seen in Halstead Road, Sible Hedingham, between 2pm and 4pm on October 25.

Specialist search teams have checked the countryside along the bus route, members of the public helped with a search on Thursday (November 2) and areas in and around Sible Hedingham were searched at the weekend.
