The family of a missing student from Lynn has pleaded for him, or anyone who may have seen him, to get in touch.

Nick Sadler, 25, has not been seen for nearly a week and police say they are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

His father, Will, said today: "If Nick reads this, please just contact us, contact the police. We just want to make sure he's safe

"If anyone sees him, recognises him, I beseech people to contact the police to notify them."

His brother, Oliver, added: "People love him and they want him back. Whatever sort of help he needs, we'll do anything for him.

"It only takes one person, just one person to see something."

Nick, who is a student at the University of East Anglia, was last seen at his home in Helena Road, Norwich, at around 1pm last Thursday.

He has suffered from anxiety and depression in the past, and had been concerned about his forthcoming dissertation and career prospects after he finishes his degree.

But his family says his disappearance is completely out of character.

Oliver said: "He's never done this before. He would always reach out to one of us. He's very expressive. He wouldn't hold back anything he was feeling."

Yesterday, police issued new pictures of Nick as the search for him continued.

Inspector Graham Dalton, of Norfolk Police, said officers were "increasingly concerned" for his welfare.

He said: "As part of the investigation extensive searches have been carried out by Police Search Advisors (PolSA) in partnership with Norfolk Fire and Rescue and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue. However, they’ve not been able to locate Nick.

"We’re appealing for help from the public to support us with our enquiries. However we’re asking people not to carry out their own searches, particularly in remote areas, whilst the investigation continues.

"We urge anyone who may have seen him or has any information as to his whereabouts to contact police immediately.”
