Derbyshire police have renewed an appeal for help to find a missing man who disappeared two years ago this week.
Tim Beardsley was last seen by his wife leaving his home in Old Tupton, Chesterfield, on July 9, 2012.
He has not been seen or heard from since.
Mr Beardsley, 46, was driving a green Ford Focus estate, which was found abandoned near Ullswater in the Lake District on July 14, 2012.
He is white, 5ft 10ins, with short, brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a pale blue and maroon striped sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Several public appeals have been made to trace Mr Beardsley, pictured right, and a Facebook group has also been set up.
PC Richard Hill, who is leading the investigation, said: “Since Mr Beardsley’s disappearance, we have had several possible sightings in both the UK and abroad.
“Most recently, a sighting was reported near Malaga airport, while we have also had calls about sightings in the Birmingham area.
“I’d like to thank those who have contacted us so far and urge people to continue looking for Mr Beardsley, and to report any possible sightings straight away.”
Police are appealing for Mr Beardsley or anyone who has information on his whereabouts to contact officers on 101.
