DETECTIVES have released new images of a man who has been missing for several days.

Luke Noone, 21, has been missing from Islington, Blackburn, since Tuesday, October 15, and was last seen at around 10pm in Punstock Road, Darwen.

Officers have released CCTV images of Mr Noone from the day he went missing.

Police believe he is still wearing these clothes, including distinctive blue and yellow Karrimor trainers, but no longer has his rucksack.

Detectives also want to trace a woman who may have spoken to Mr Noone.

At around 10.30am on Sunday a woman told a mountain rescue volunteer she had spoken to a man matching Mr Noone's description at the junction of Inverness Road and Manor Road in Darwen.

The woman is described as white, in her late 40s to early 50s, wearing a t-shirt referring to a care home and carrying a bucket.

As well as Blackburn and Darwen, Mr Noone also has links to Accrington, Lytham and Blackpool.

He is known to camp out and could be staying in a shed or garage.

Det Sgt Louise Briggs said: "Our search to find Luke is very much on-going.

"He has been missing for a number of days now and we are very concerned for his welfare.

"We now have clear CCTV images which show the clothing he was wearing on the day he disappeared. If you have seen a man matching this description, please come forward.

"Furthermore, we want to trace a woman who may have information crucial to our investigation.

"We know this woman spoke to a mountain rescue volunteer and may be able to assist our enquiries.

"If this was you, please come forward."
