CONCERN is growing for a 33-year-old man who has gone missing in the Taunton area.

Scott McCafferty was reported missing on January 4.

He was last seen leaving Tesco in Castle Street at around 3.05pm on January 2, walking in the direction of French Weir. 

Scott is a white man, about 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build with mousy/brown short hair and a full red/brown beard.

On his left arm he has a tattoo of a Phoenix.

When he went missing he was wearing a brown jacket, grey T shirt, dark coloured jeans and dark coloured shoes.

It is believed he could be in the Taunton area but he also has links with Exeter in Devon and Cornwall and may have travelled there from Somerset.
