A police helicopter and search boats are out looking for a man who went missing after a night out in Rochester.
Rory Baldwin, 25, from Farnham in Surrey, went missing at around 12.30am on Saturday, July 31 July following a night out with friends.
A statement from the force said: "Officers are concerned for his welfare."
The latest search site is reportedly by the old civic centre in Strood.
