SEARCH teams took to the water in Stourport at the weekend as part of ongoing efforts to find missing dad Stephen Colledge.

Stephen has been missing for nearly five weeks, and his family and police are growing increasingly concerned for his whereabouts.

West Mercia Search and Rescue operated a sonar and boats in the Stourport area on Sunday (March 3), and teams continued to search the river banks on foot.

The 53-year-old is believed to have been in the Wheatsheaf pub on Stourport high street at around 7.30pm on Tuesday, January 29,, but has not been seen or heard from since 9pm that evening.

He is described as white, of slim to average build, around 5ft 11in tall, with short brown hair.

At the time of his disappearance, he was thought to be wearing a heavy padded bomber style jacket, grey hoodie underneath the jacket, navy blue jeans and black trainers with a white sole.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident 676s.
