(name changed for obvious reasons) Posted here for most traffic

Please can you help me find my friend Jonny (in the picture). He left home in Stratford at 5am Monday morning with no phone and no keys and hasn't been seen or heard from since. The police are aware but consider him low risk so haven't started looking at CCTV or bank accounts. We have tried every place we can think of, plus all his friends are now sharing this on Facebook and Twitter - I'm just hoping the power of Mumsnet will help.

He's 45, about 5'3". He doesn't have his passport, we have called all the local hospitals and been to his regular haunts. He doesn't share finances with anyone so we can't see if there has activity on his bank account - we don't think he has seen his emails or his facebook as he doesn't have his computer with him either.

This is really really out of character for him, so we are all desperately worried. If you have seen him please contact me directly, or call 101 and ask for Missing Persons.

I'm going to ask nicely that people don't speculate as to why he might have gone, as I won’t answer. When he comes back (please anyone who might be listening) I think he would rather we hadn't shared his whole life on the Internet.

Bump again - it's Stratford London! Thanks to all

Does he have a registered Oystercard and could anybody check his account to see if he's made any journeys.

Best of luck, I hope he found soon safe and well.
