On the six-month anniversary of Doug Carroll's disappearance, Thames Valley Police have released an image of his car, recovered by investigators in West Berkshire in April this year.

Mr Carroll was last sighted in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, on April 20, although his vehicle was found near the Ridgeway at Compton on April 21.

Investigators are making a renewed appeal, seeking anybody who believes they saw the missing man or his vehicle on the day.

He was last seen wearing a black hooded top, a black T-shirt, black Ellesse jogging bottoms and black Vans trainers.

He also had a black Poker Stars rucksack on his person and is believed to have had black sunglasses with him.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Jon Shaw, of Abingdon CID, said: "It has now been six months since Doug was last seen, and naturally, his family and his partner are very distressed at his disappearance, that was completely out of character for him.

"Since he was last seen in Tunbridge Wells, we have ascertained that he travelled to Reading and then on to Compton, where he has left his car.

"We have no confirmed sightings of Doug leaving his vehicle, and we have no clue as to where he went after doing so.

"Today, we are releasing an image of Doug’s car, along with some new photographs, and are again appealing to the public for help.

"Were you up on the Ridgeway on 21 April this year? Do you remember seeing a man matching Doug’s description or this car, either on the Ridgeway or driving towards the Ridgeway?

"We had a possible sighting reported of Doug leaving his car on foot in the general direction of Aldworth, but there have been no confirmed sightings of him.

"The Ridgeway is a very popular area for walkers, and I am sure that someone will have seen him, or his vehicle around 21 April.

"I would urge anybody with any information, no matter how insignificant you feel this may be, to please contact Thames Valley Police.

"Were you on the Ridgeway taking photographs, or have mobile phone footage, or do you live in the area and have CCTV footage from around this time?

"Any information would be gratefully received as we continue to search for Doug.

"His family need to know what has happened to Doug and we continue to search in and around the area for clues as to his whereabouts.

"I would urge anybody who has any information to please contact us either online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43210168920.

"Any information that can help may be the key to ascertaining what has happened to Doug, and so please do get in touch."
