POLICE are appealing for assistance to locate a man missing from the Hunter Region.
Allan Bentley, aged 63, was last seen about 12pm on Monday in the Tea Gardens area.
He was reported missing to Port Stephens police, who commenced an investigation into his whereabouts.
Police are concerned for his welfare after he failed to attend pre-arranged appointments and his regular game of lawn bowls on Saturday, at a bowling club on Old Maitland Road at Hexham.
Allan is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 179cm tall, of medium build with short brown and grey hair and a beard.
It is believed he may be driving a white coloured Holden combo van, with NSW registration UQG-146, which has 'catering' written on the side.
Anyone who may have information regarding Allan's whereabouts is urged to contact crime stoppers on 1800 333 000.
