AN 89-year-old man who went missing last week has still not been found.

Camera footage showed a man matching Peter Carver's description wading into the River Tone on Friday (January 18). 

Underwater rescue teams were seen by the Brewhouse Theatre searching the river later that evening, but police have said Mr Carver has not been found.

He is described as a white man, about 5ft 9ins tall with white hair and he wears glasses. It is thought he may be wearing slippers and a light coloured, possibly blue quilted-type gilet or waistcoat.

He has a large plaster on the right hand side of his head and is often seen shopping in Taunton town centre.

Anybody with information should contact police on 101.
