Although he often goes walking alone for up to a month at a time, either wild camping or staying at campsites and bunkhouses, he normally keeps in regular contact with his family.

He is known to visit Cumbria, including around Carlisle, and North Yorkshire, including around Gargrave.

He has previously made mention of looking to find work fruit picking “down South”.

Detective Inspector Dan Bates, of Leeds District CID, said Mr Warr’s family are very concerned for his welfare. He added: “Although Carl’s lifestyle includes going off walking and camping alone, often for long periods, it is completely out of character for him to not have been in touch with his family for this long.

“They are very concerned about him, and we would like to hear from anyone who has seen him or who has any information that could help to trace him.”

Mr Warr is 6ft tall, bald, of stocky build with a grey full beard. He was last seen carrying a backpack and wearing a grey zipped jacket, grey jeans and hiking boots.

Anyone who has seen him or who has any information that could assist in tracing him is asked to Leeds District CID via 101 quoting reference 13220342084 or online at www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat.
