One hundred days have passed since an artist and musician went missing in Kent.
His dad, Jason Joiner, previously told KentOnline that prior to his disappearance, Dan had been picked up at Sturry Railway Station by police due to concerns for his welfare.
He was taken to the QEQM hospital in Margate, but is believed to have left soon after.
Dan, who lives just off Sturry Road, was captured on CCTV in Margate a short while later – but has not been seen since.
A ‘Help find Dan Venes’ page set up on Facebook has amassed more than 2,500 followers.
Members of the group regularly head out to investigate reported potential sightings of Dan.
But there have been no confirmed sightings.
Mr Joiner, from Swalecliffe, said in September that the talented artist and musician had not used his bank card since he went missing.
He urged members of the public to keep an eye out for his son and report any sightings to police.
“We’d love them to take a photo of him,” he added. “Just take a quick snap and then we’d know if it was him. I love him and I’d love him home. I miss him.”
He described his son – who has thousands of followers on Facebook pages exhibiting his art and music – as a “brilliant” guitar player and “a lovely, caring person”.
Dan is 5ft 9ins, slim and has short, dark hair.
He also has a short beard and was last seen wearing a red and black checked shirt with black jeans.
Police say they are still searching for him and have renewed their appeal for information.
Det Insp Louise Murphy said: "Daniel is still missing and inquiries to locate him remain ongoing.
"We are still very keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him or has any information about his whereabouts since August 14."
Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101 and quoting reference number 14-1230, or use the online missing person form on the Kent Police website.
