Searches have taken place in the Lake District for a man who went missing from Blackpool two weeks ago.

Chay Lancaster left his mother's home on Torsway Avenue after dinner on 11 September but has not been in contact with his family since.

Lancashire Police have confirmed a sighting of the 41-year-old father-of-three in Windermere, Cumbria, the following day, but nothing since.

He was believed to be heading for the Langdale Pikes area.

However, members of the Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue team spent six hours searching the area on Friday and found nothing.

Keen walker

Lancashire Police have said they are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Mr Lancaster is white, slim and about 5ft 10ins (1.77m) tall. He has black receding hair, a pale complexion and was last seen wearing a red T-shirt, beige cords and a jacket.

He is a keen walker and is believe to have taken walking equipment with him including his GPS and waterproofs.

He regularly visits the Lake District and local areas including the Forest of Bowland and Brock Bottom.
