Duncan Burgess was last seen at the Hill Inn, Chapel-le-Dale

Police are appealing to outdoor enthusiasts for sightings of a man who has gone missing in the Yorkshire Dales.

Duncan Burgess, 50, was last seen at the Old Hill Inn in Chapel-le-Dale, which lies on the Yorkshire Three Peaks route, between Whernside and Ingleborough.

North Yorkshire Police said he was last seen late on Wednesday night and they are now concerned for his safety.

A force spokesperson said: “Duncan has no access to a vehicle or money but is physically fit and can walk long distances. He may also be living rough.

“We are particularly appealing to walkers and campers who might have seen him on their travels, and anyone who may have given a lift to Duncan or offered him accommodation in the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria and Lancashire borders area.”

He is described as white with short, dark brown hair, brown eyes and is of stocky build. He was last seen wearing a red fleece, a blue jacket, dark coloured trousers, a tweed cap and was carrying a large rucksack.

Anyone who has seen Mr Burgess or knows where he is, is asked to call North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the force control room.
