Inspector George Nixon said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Donald as time passes and would urge anyone with information or who believes they may have seen him on Sunday evening or at any time since to get in touch.
“We have released a new photograph showing him wearing a distinctive light coloured jacket with a dark collar. If this helps jog anyone’s memory then please come forward urgently as your information could help establish Donald’s movements.
“I would also urge anyone who may have dashcam or private CCTV from the Beach Esplanade or surrounding area to review this and pass on anything of note to us.
“Finally I would ask any residents or businesses in the local area with a shed or outbuilding where a person could seek shelter to check this and let us know if you find anything of note.”
