About 50 people have continued to search for a man who has been missing for more than three weeks, despite working in sub-zero temperatures.

Paul Moore, 44, from Kesgrave, was last seen at about 16:00 GMT on 6 February, in Nacton, near Ipswich.

Suffolk Police, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) and HM Coastguard have all been involved in the search.

A man in his 30s, who was arrested in connection with his disappearance, has been released under investigation.

Mr Moore was reported missing on 8 February. The search has concentrated on nearby wooded areas and the Orwell foreshore at Nacton.

Meanwhile, police have issued a picture of the type of watch Mr Moore is believed to have been wearing when he went missing.

"We'd also like to thank SULSAR and the coastguard for their assistance in these searches."
