Police have increasing concerns for the welfare of a missing Hamilton man.
Officers and volunteers have spent the day searching for 67-year-old Frederick Hayward, but are yet to find any sign of him.
Mr Hayward was last seen leaving his Hamilton home in Thames Street around 5pm on Monday night, with the intention of travelling to Raglan.
He is described as Caucasian, with a slim build and short white / grey hair.
Police said he was wearing a brown cotton leather-look jacket, tan pants and light khaki green cap before he went missing.
His car was located on Old Mountain Road, between Raglan and Hamilton last night.
