Missing BBC Bristol presenter Peter Rowell

Police have issued an appeal for the public’s help to find a vulnerable missing man in the South Gloucestershire area.

Peter Rowell aged 52 years of Wickwar, was last seen this morning at about 8:30am, when he left home for work as normal.

He did not turn up for work and concern increased when he could not be contacted.

Peter parked his car at Morrison’s supermarket in Yate.

Mr Rowell is described as a white man with white/silver coloured hair. He is 5ft 10ins of stocky build. He is possibly wearing brown coloured jeans and a white shirt.

He is thought to be depressed, following the death of a close relative.

The missing man is well known in the Bristol area through his job as an afternoon presenter on BBC Radio Bristol. He previously worked for GWR Radio and ITV West (formerly HTV West).

Police would like Peter, or anyone spotting him to contact them. Anyone with information is asked to contact Staple Hill police station on 0845 4567000 or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
