A CAR which a missing Surrey man was reported to be driving was captured on Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras last night (Tuesday) on the A281 in Horsham.

Police in Surrey are growing concerned for the welfare of 34-year-old Martin Ball who has not been seen since Tuesday morning.

Mr Ball was last seen by his mother at 8.30am at his home address in Ludlow Close, Frimley, Surrey.

He later left the house in a bronze-coloured Honda Civic, registration number LR57 MPF. The car, which can look black in some lights, was captured on Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras at around 7.30pm on the A281.

Mr Ball is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall, of a medium build, with short brown hair and hazel eyes.

Sergeant Chris Rambour, of the Missing Persons Unit, said: “This is completely out of character for Mr Ball and is therefore of concern to ourselves and his family. We would appeal to anyone who may have seen Mr Ball, or a vehicle matching the description given, to contact Surrey Police urgently on 0845 125 2222, quoting reference M/11/345.

“Similarly I would ask Mr Ball himself to call us so we can ensure he is safe and well.”
