Police have asked anyone who has seen Robert since Thursday, spoken to him on the phone or via any social media, or anyone can assist them with the investigation then please get in touch by calling 101.
Just been searching inaccessible coastline near #Salcombe for a missing person (945).
This saves countless hours for a limited ground resource who can make extensive enquires via other means.
All part of the multi-agency approach which is key to today's effective policing.
