    On standby to assist in Barnstaple missing person search

    The team were placed on standby today to assist Exmoor MRT with a missing person search in the Barnstaple area.

    At this stage of the missing person enquiry our services are not required and we have been stood down for the time being.

    Police are asking for the public’s help to locate a 55-year-old man missing from his home in Barnstaple.

    Officers are concerned for the welfare of Christopher Barrow who left his Swimbridge home around 1.30pm on Monday 10 February.

    He disappeared on foot with his pet dog, a long-haired dark-coloured lurcher.

    Police units have been conducting searches across the Barnstaple area for Mr Barrow since yesterday afternoon. The police helicopter and both Dartmoor and Exmoor Rescue Groups are involved in the search as is the Devon Cave Search and Rescue Group.

    Officers are urging anyone who sees Mr Barrow or knows of his whereabouts to contact them immediately.

    He is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall and of slim build. He is clean shaven and has cropped brown hair. He was last seen wearing a red top, blue jeans, tan-coloured work boots and possibly a green jacket.

    Anyone with information is asked to call police on 999, quoting log 510 of 10/02/14.
