Police are concerned for the welfare of Hastings man Karl Bunster.

Karl, 37, was due to appear before Hastings magistrates on Wednesday (December 30) to face two charges of assault by beating.

However, he failed to show up and police are concerned as he has not been seen since before Christmas.

Detective Inspector Gavin Patch said: “This is a little unusual, but the circumstances of his non-appearance in court and that he has not been seen by family and friends since before Christmas have raised worries.”

Anyone who knows of his whereabouts can contact Sussex Police by emailing 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or calling 101 quoting serial 1715 of 15/07.

Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
