James McDonald, 23, was last seen at home on Monday, September 28, say police.

Although he has family ties in the Garstang area, officers investigating his disappearance say they believe he has driven to London in his silver Ford Fiesta.

Police say they believe this to be the case after they checked the vehicle's records and found that his car has since been sold in London.
