POLICE are appealing to people across Dorset for help in finding a missing man.

Darrell Genner, who uses the last name Bartlett and is 25 years old, was last heard from at around 3.30pm on Saturday, June 20.

Police say in a message he sent he seemed very upset and nobody has had any contact with him since.

Darrell, from Bournemouth, is white, about five feet nine inches tall and of slim build. He has brown hair and green eyes. It is not known what he is wearing.

Chief Inspector Steve Yeoman, of Dorset Police, said: “Since last night when Darrell was reported missing, we have made a number of enquiries. However, so far we have been unable to find him.

“As his last message indicated that he was very upset, we are concerned that he may come to harm and we therefore need to find him urgently.

“I am hoping that somebody may have seen Darrell since yesterday afternoon or might know where he could be.”
