Sakminder Uppal, 42, known to his friends as Navi, went missing on Sunday February 14.

At around 10pm on that date he was picked up by taxi from his home and dropped off near Victoria Park in Leamington. He has not been heard from since.

Navi is about 5ft 8in tall and of athletic build with short black hair. When he left home he was clean shaven and wearing a black jacket, a bright blue jumper, a white T-shirt and tan coloured ankle boots.

In a statement, his family said: “We haven’t given up hope and would again ask anyone who may have seen Navi to please contact police. No matter how insignificant you may think it is, any information is valuable.

“Navi is a much loved son, brother and friend and we continue to miss him terribly. At family occasions, his absence is deeply felt.

“Navi, if you see this, please get in touch, we just want to know you are safe. We all miss you and we love you.”

Investigating officer Inspector Lee Crofts said: “Navi has not been seen or heard from for six months now, and we are still appealing for anyone who may have any information relating to his whereabouts to contact us on 101.

“Understandably, Navi’s family are desperate for any information about his whereabouts. Warwickshire Police continue to support the family in their bid to find him safe and well.

“I would ask the public to continue to share our appeal, please use the hashtag #HelpFindNavi on social media to spread the word to reach as many people as possible.”

Anyone with any information should contact Warwickshire Police on 101 or, from outside the United Kingdom, 00 44 1926 415000.
