Extensive enquiries have been ongoing to locate him since.
His family have today issued the following statement: “Trevor remains missing and as a family we are devastated. Christmas is approaching and we really want him back with us, it has been such an upsetting time but we remain hopeful that he will be found.
“It breaks our hearts to think that he may be out somewhere in the cold weather. I’d appeal for anyone with any information to contact the police and try to bring Trevor home for Christmas so he can spend it with his family where he belongs.”
Trevor is described as white, 5ft 7in tall, of medium build and with a shaved head and blue eyes. He has a tattoo of a scorpion on the top of his left arm and a tattoo of a Union Jack on his right arm.
