A MAN who worked at Ambleside Youth Hostel and a popular restaurant in the town has been missing since yesterday morning.

Andrew Mayall, is from the Cockermouth area and was last seen between 9.30am and 10.30am on March 26 on Main Street, Cockermouth.

The 47-year-old is said to be a past employer of Ambleside Youth Hostel and Zeffirelli's in the town.

Police are concerned for his welfare as this is very out of character for Mr Mayall.

Mr Mayall is described as slim build, about 6ft tall, with a short dark receding hairline and he has a very close cropped beard.

Andrew wears glasses and was believed to be wearing a black ice peak jacket with a criss-cross design on it. He was also believed to be wearing a maroon coloured fleece and also a green t-shirt with black slashes on it.

He was wearing dark coloured jeans. He may also have a purple and grey backpack.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cumbria police on 101 as soon as possible and ask for Cockermouth Police Station.
