Police in Cornwall are appealing for information to help trace a missing man from the Truro area.
Gerard Kearney, aged 53, is described as being white, medium build and has short dark brown hair.
He had recently visited hospital for treatment for a facial injury and so may have a hospital dressing on his cheek.
He also has scars on his neck and may be dressed in hospital pyjamas and a dark coloured coat.
A police spokesman said: "We are becoming extremely concerned for his safety.
"Anyone who has seen Mr Kearney in the last three days is asked to call the police on 101 quoting log 882 271012."
