A new photo has been released in an effort to track down a missing man not seen for five days.
The 67-year-old, who is lives in the Wincheap area of the city, is of medium build, with grey hair, a goatee beard and green eyes.
He was reported to be wearing a long-sleeved thick green and black camouflage shirt with a German flag on the shoulder.
Mr Sharp's disappearance was lodged with police on Saturday after he had not been seen for a day.
The release of the clearer photo is hoped to help people recognise Mr Sharp should they spot him.
Anyone who knows of Ian’s whereabouts should call Kent Police on 101 quoting 25-1407.
