A Christchurch man's disappearance four days ago has sparked fears for his wellbeing.
Police today said they had concerns for Peter John Crowther, 55, who was last seen at his workplace in Addington about 5pm on Friday.
He has not been in contact with his family since then, and his disappearance has been described as out of character.
Police described Mr Crowther as a solidly built Caucasian man, about 1.6m tall, with short grey hair, brown eyes and a distinctively large nose.
He was believed to be driving a 1996 Green Mitsubishi Galant, registration number UJ8610, and may be in the North Canterbury or West Coast areas.
Christchurch police have asked for anyone who has seen Mr Crowther or his car, or anyone who has information about his whereabouts, to get in touch.
