He was wearing a brown/green bomber jacket with dark coloured chinos and a white beanie hat at his last confirmed sighting.

He is also believed to have been wearing black and white Vans trainers.

Mr Maury suffers from poor eyesight and usually wear glasses, however police believe he is without them.

Divers are still searching Duddingston Loch and there are police searchers in Holyrood Park.

On Saturday and Sunday about 100 volunteers joined officers in the search around Duddingston Golf Club and Holyrood High School.

Ch Insp Kevin McLean, of Police Scotland, said: "Antione has now been missing for a week and it is imperative that we find him.

"I would like to thank the members of the public who came to the Duddingston area at the weekend to help us find Antoine. This activity was essential and is very much appreciated.

"As before, we would urge anyone who lives in the Duddingston Village area to check their gardens and outhouses, as this may lead us to discovering Antoine whereabouts.

"I would also ask regular users of the park who were there last week to think back and ask if themselves they saw Antoine."
