“His family are naturally desperate to know he is safe and I would urge Tim or anyone who has any information about his whereabouts to get in touch.” 

Tim is described as a white, 5ft 8in tall, with a scar to his left cheek and a beard. He was last seen wearing a black beanie hat with a Leeds United emblem on the front. He speaks with a Yorkshire accent.
