Family and friends of a man who went missing during a night out in Kent have said they are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Patrick Lamb, 28, was last seen with friends in Bar Chocolate in Maidstone on Saturday at about 00:30 GMT.

His girlfriend Natasha Morgan lives with him in Greenhithe and said his disappearance was out of character.

"His phone is off, he hasn't used his bank cards, [and he] hasn't got in touch with his family or me," she said.

Ms Morgan said the broadcast engineer had been due to stay overnight in a local hotel but had not returned, and had left his work van there.

He was also supposed to pick his sister up on Saturday night but never showed up, she said.

"We're worried that something awful has happened to him because this isn't like him at all."

She said her boyfriend was wearing dark jeans, a black "Superdry" jacket and a black "Superdry" t-shirt underneath with silver writing on it when he went missing.

He is described as being about 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, of medium to slim build, with short dark hair and hazel eyes.

Insp Preston Chalk, of Kent Police, said officers were pursuing a number of lines of enquiry in their search for Mr Lamb.

"This is naturally a very difficult time for Patrick's family. We are keeping them regularly updated and meet with them every day.

"The most important thing is Patrick's welfare," he said.
