Cambridgeshire Constabulary has now released CCTV footage showing Mr Smith walking in the direction of Maxey Pits, a nature reserve near Peterborough.    

Det Insp Dave Murphy of Cambridgeshire Police, said: ‘Michael has never been missing before and to not be in touch with anyone for such a long period of time is very unusual for him.

‘His family are naturally very worried and as time goes on we are growing more concerned about Michael.’  

The CCTV footage, taken at around 11.30am on Tuesday, June 11 shows Mr Smith walking in the direction of Maxey Pits, a nature reserve near Peterborough

Mr Smith, also known as Mick, is described as white, 5′ 10′, slim, with short blond hair.

He was last seen wearing a navy blue jacket, jumper and navy work trousers.  

DI Murphy continued: ‘Michael left the family home on foot but is a strong walker so it’s possible he’s not in the Maxey area.

‘If you think you have seen Michael in the past week please get in touch.’

Anyone who has seen Michael or believes they may know where he is should contact police by calling 101.
