"There is a systematic search plan in place to find Ken and we would urge the public to recall their movements in or around Sevenoaks railway station on Friday in case they saw him.

"We would also ask the residents of Sevenoaks to check their gardens and any sheds or outbuildings in case Ken has sought shelter."

Kent Fire and Rescue Service also helped with the search on Saturday when they launched their drone over Sevenoaks Nature Reserve. 

Anyone who has seen Mr Henson or knows where he is, is asked to contact police on 101 and quote incident number 27-1536.
