His wife, Rachel Baker, 50, said: “Paul, if you see this, please just come home. All I want to do is give you a big hug. I miss you so much, as does our Gabs.

“Our dogs – Darcy and Betty – miss you too. If I say your name, they get up. We all want you back.”

“I know you love the outdoors, but we’re all worried about you, especially as it’s so cold at the minute. I need to know that you’re eating properly.

“I love you so much and I won’t stop looking for you until I find you. It doesn’t matter why you left – please come home so we can continue our lives together.”

Paul, pictured below with Rachel, is of a slim build and is 5ft 6ins tall. He has receding mousey grey hair and stubble. When his family last saw him, he was wearing jeans and possibly a long Parka style jacket.
