Police are looking for a 51-year-old Kapiti man who hasn't been seen since he left work last night.
Jason Jon Penny was last seen at 7.30pm on Thursday after leaving work in Porirua.
He is said to have left the address on foot, and left his car in the car park with his cell phone and cards inside. He had withdrawn some money before he went missing.
Family have reported that his disappearance is totally out of character and they are extremely concerned.
He is said to have recently shaved off his hair to number two length and was last seen wearing grey trousers, a black and grey hoodie with lime trim down the arms and across the chest, brown shoes and possibly a blue backpack.
Penny has friends around the Wellington district and beyond and is a keen fisherman.
Anyone who knows where Jason Penny is or has seen someone matching his description is being urged to contact Porirua Police Station on 04 238 1400, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
