Police are appealing for the public’s help as they continue their search for 24-year-old Baljeev Johal, who went missing near Rugby.

Baljeev, who is from the Bramcote area of Nottingham, was last seen at 12.30am on Sunday October 5 at a family event at the Sports Connexion on Leamington Road in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire.

It is thought that Baljeev left the venue by foot.

Police enquiries began after he was reported missing and acres of land have been searched by officers in the area surrounding Leamington Road.

Chief Inspector Ian Whiting said: “We’ve been carrying out detailed enquiries and thorough searches for Baljeev but sadly these have not yet led us to him.

“Police and Baljeev’s family are very concerned for his welfare. He has been away for five cold nights now and is thought to only be wearing a suit.

“We have specialist officers carrying out miles of searches in the areas around the last sighting of Baljeev. We have also carried out searches of the nearby river.”

Baljeev is described as Asian and around 6ft 3ins tall. He wears glasses and was last seen wearing a slim white shirt with a black jacket and black trousers.

Chief Insp Whiting added: “We are doing all we can to find Baljeev but we need the public’s help. If you were travelling in the Ryton-on-Dunsmore in the early hours of Sunday morning and believe you may have seen him, or you have any information about his whereabouts, please let us know.”

Information can be given to Warwickshire Police by calling 101 and quoting incident number 16 of October 5.
