A man from Chippenham is still missing after an extensive police dog and helicopter search.
Clive Harding, 61, went missing from his home in the town at around 11.30am this morning (13 May), sparking a major search and rescue operation.
At around 5pm, a number of officers gathered in Eastern Avenue, Monkton Park, where a search was undertaken of nearby fields using a general purpose police dog.
Shortly afterwards the National Police Air Service (NPAS) from Bournemouth attended the location and circled numerous times in a bid to locate the vulnerable man.

He is believed to be wearing black tracksuit bottoms and a burgundy t-shirt.
