Police searching for a missing Welsh soldier in Kent are trying to trace the driver of a small black hatchback car.

Josh Thomas, 18, who is based at Brompton Barracks in Dock Road, Chatham, was last seen on CCTV in Rochester at 01:00 BST last Wednesday.

He had spent the night with friends at the City Wall pub and the images showed him walking over Rochester bridge and the car stopping next to him.

The driver drove off and then reversed back, seemingly to talk to the soldier.

Mr Thomas is described as white, about 5ft 9in (1.8m) tall, of slim build and with short dark brown hair.

He was wearing a dark blue Lyle and Scott jumper with white and red collar, grey jeans and white Converse trainers.
