Police have renewed their appeal for information on the whereabouts of Josh Sanchez-Maldonado, who went missing in Feltham last week.

Mr Sanchez-Maldonado, a US national based in San Francisco, who works as a trader, had arrived in the UK on a flight from Japan on Wednesday, 21 October and was last seen leaving St Giles Hotel in Feltham at around 12:35hrs on Thursday, 22 October.

It is understood that he was in the UK for a job interview.

He was due to fly to San Francisco via Dublin on Thursday, 22 October, from Heathrow Airport, but he did not take the flight.

His family has not heard from him since Wednesday, 21 October and he has not returned to the hotel on Hounslow Road, Feltham.

There have been no further reported sightings of him and officers are growing increasingly concerned for his safety and wellbeing.

Mr Sanchez-Maldonado's father last spoke to him on Wednesday, 21 October.

Mr Sanchez-Maldonado is described as white, around 5ft 8ins tall, with a slim build and short dark hair.

He was last seen wearing a dark coloured flat cap, a brown/grey T-shirt, white shorts and black trainers. He is believed not to have any money or access to it.

Appealing for the assistance of the public, his family said: "Josh is a lovable person and we have left our world back home to be here for him.

"He is very goal oriented, very organised, detailed, kind, lovable and a respectful person.

"He has always kept in close communication to us. He is outspoken and very expressive. 

"The whole family is highly concerned for his well being. We really wish he contacts us as soon as possible.

"Josh please contact us, your parents, your brother or sister through email, text, phone call or by any other means."
