Police, along with divers and mountain rescue volunteers, have been searching the marina and carrying out house-to-house inquiries.

Mr Vallory is white, 5ft 10in (1.78m) tall, of medium build with a white beard and was last seen wearing a dark green hat. He had been to buy his paper.

Mrs Vallory said: "He only said in the week 'I'm such a lucky man. I've got you, the cat and I can have a pint at the quiz. I'm such a lucky man'.

"And now I can't believe he is not here. We are desperate to have him back."

Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
