CONCERNS are growing for a missing Somerset man "inappropriately dressed" for the weather and without any money.

Police have issued an appeal to trace Talmadge Beaven, 51, known as Tally, who went missing from Wincanton overnight.

He was last seen in the West Hill area at about 4.30pm yesterday (Wednesday).

He is described as white, about 5ft 10ins tall and thin. He has short, greying black hair and beard. When last seen he was wearing blue jeans and a red checked jacket.

He lives in supported accommodation and is known to walk long distances.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: "We’re concerned for Talmadge’s welfare as he’s inappropriately dressed for the weather conditions.

"He doesn’t have any money with him and will not engage with other people to seek help.

"Talmadge may be walking along footpaths over fields or along the roadside so we’d ask dog walkers, farmers and drivers to look out for him."

If you know where Talmadge is now, call 999 straight away.

If you have any other information which could help police find him, ring 101 quoting reference 5220011930.
