Hampshire Police are renewing their appeals for information three weeks after a British diplomat from Bentley went missing.

52-year-old Richard Morris was last seen on the morning of 6 May when he left his home to go for a run. 

A number of sightings of runners on that day have been reported and officers want to narrow these down to ones that were Richard.

Any man who was running in Bentley and the surrounding areas, between 10am and 4pm on 6 May, is asked to contact the police.
