Family's appeal to missing Bath man John Dobson
The family of a retired teacher who has been missing since the weekend are appealing for information to help find him.
John Dobson, who is known as Alan, left his home in Bear Flat early on Sunday morning, taking the family car.
The 62-year-old father-of-two, who used to work as a maths teacher at St Laurence School, in Bradford on Avon, is known to be depressed and has other health problems.
Concerns are growing for his welfare and detectives are hoping that the public might be able to provide key information about his whereabouts.

They are also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen his car, which is a black Peugeot 206 hatchback, registration number BG51 BYM.
His wife Liz said they just wanted to hear that he was safe and well.
She said: “Obviously my son and daughter and I are desperately worried about Alan. We love him and just want him to come home safely.”
Mr Dobson is a keen walker who has enjoyed visiting the countryside and beauty spots in the Bath area.
Det Con James Muir, who is leading the investigation, said they were doing everything they could to try to find him.
He said: “Officers have carried out extensive searches, including using the force helicopter, but so far we have found no sign of Mr Dobson or his car.
“The longer he is missing the more concerned we become for his safety.”
Mr Dobson is 5ft 11ins tall, of slim build with dark hair. He may be wearing a green anorak and brown walking shoes.
Police want Mr Dobson himself, or anyone who sees him or his car, to call them on 101.
