Chief Inspector Mark Hedges said: ‘We are asking residents in Pluckley and Headcorn to check their gardens and outbuildings for any sign of Christopher and his dog. I would also request that dog walkers in these rural areas remain vigilant and call us if they spot him.
‘Christopher is autistic and was distressed when he went missing. If you see him, please call us and do not approach him because it will scare him and cause him more distress.
‘He was reported to be wearing dark trousers and either a blue rain coat or a navy blue zip-up hooded top. He had his black and white Spaniel dog called Molly(pictured) with him.
‘Prior to being reported missing, he was driving a silver Vauxhall Corsa, which has since been located, but we are keen to hear from anyone who might remember seeing him in the car on 9 August.
‘We remain concerned for Christopher’s welfare and are keen to reunite him with his family as quickly as possible.’
