For two weeks running police have stopped motorists and passers-by around at this late hour on a Monday in their continuing effort to trace the 46-year old whose last image had been caught on CCTV.

It is hoped that their intervention will jog the memory of those who may have seen Alexander whose family are described as “extremely worried.” Police have also told the media that Alexander has never gone missing before and that his disappearance is “out of character’’
