The daughter of a missing man from Lydd has released a heartfelt appeal as concern grows for the welfare of her father.
Wayne Leppard, 68, was last seen in the Pleasance Road area at around 10am on Friday (September 3).
His daughter Sam Leppard has taken to Facebook to thank those in the Romney Marsh area for their assistance in searching for her father and to vow to bring him home.
She wrote: "Still no news or any kind of update on my Dad despite the biggest efforts of Kent Police combined with us, locals and complete strangers.
"On behalf of all of us I just want to say the biggest thank you for every single message of support and love that has come in to us.
"We are just broken and each message has helped our hearts.
"Thank you to everybody who turned up on our doorstep these last two days and gave up their days to help us find Dad or just to be with Mum, you are THE most incredible humans and we are so lucky to have you. We love you all.
"We have had hundreds of messages and phone calls and at the moment I just can't get back to you all but thank you all so so much.
"We and Kent Police are back out to search until darkness. We will get you home Dad."
Ms Leppard appealed for help again yesterday (Monday 6).
She said: "We still have no news and no Dad. We can't even begin to describe the pain.
"If I can just ask you all to keep sharing please, we would be forever grateful."
Mr Leppard is believed to be wearing blue jeans, a blue top with glasses and is described as white, of slim build and six feet tall.
Officers are growing increasingly concerned of his whereabouts and have been searching the area over the past few days.
A number of police cars were pictured at the scene on Saturday (September 4) with officers exploring the area.
Anyone with information which can help locate Wayne is asked to call 101 quoting reference 03-0499.
