Police are worried for the welfare of a Carlisle man who was last seen in Penrith last Thursday.

Steven Briscoe, 44, was last seen in the Abbots Bank area of Penrith at about 8pm on Thursday.

A police spokesman described Steven as: "5ft 11in of medium build, with dark hair and beard and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue fleece and he may be carrying camping gear or a sleeping bag."

Anyone with information should contact police on 101.

Officers would also like to urge Steven to contact this number if he sees this appeal.
