The red Nissan Juke was found in the car park of The Anchor Inn in High Street, Great Barford, which runs alongside the Great Ouse, on Friday and officers are concerned for the welfare of its owner, who lives in Cadwell Court, Hitchin.

According to social media reports they have already carried out a search of the nearby river.

A police spokesman said on Saturday night: “We’re becoming increasingly concerned for Leonard as he is not believed to have been seen for several days now, and we’d encourage him to get in touch with us to let us know that he is safe.

“We’re also urging anyone who may have seen him, or who has any information about his whereabouts, to contact us straight away.”

Leonard is described as around 5ft 8ins tall, clean shaven, with short grey neat hair, and steel-framed glasses.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting BP-01012016-0190.
