However the 29-year-old did not go to work, but returned home. Later his partner Emma Tapp came back to find he was gone.

It was believed Doug may have travelled to Berkshire, and Thames Valley Police later found his grey Peugeot 207 on The Ridgeway near the villages of Aldworth and Compton.

Despite renewing their appeals for information, Mr Carroll remains missing and police say they "remain very concerned for his welfare".

His partner Emma says she has been left "lost and confused" by his disappearance.

"He had gone off for a new job that morning," she said. "That was not going to work out, and he came home. When I got home he was just gone.

"I just knew something was wrong."

Ms Tapp explained how Mr Carroll, who had been out of work for a number of months, had struggled with his mental health in the past but said he had made a lot of progress dealing with it.

"It's just such a shock," the 30-year-old said. "We don't know what's going through his head.

"We thought that he was around here, but he had made it to Compton where his car was found. Since then we have heard nothing.

"It's such a huge area. He was born there but only spent a couple of years there. There's no friends or family.

"It's just knowing he's OK, he can contact anyone..."

"We just want to know he is safe. We just want to know he is OK. We would love him home, but it's just knowing he's OK, he can contact anyone."

When he was last seen, Doug was wearing a black hooded top, a black t-shirt, black Ellesse jogging bottoms and black Vans trainers. He was carrying a black Poker Stars rucksack.

He is described as 6ft 3ins tall, of slim build with brown hair and brown eyes.

If anyone sees Doug they should call 999, or call 101 with any other information quoting reference number 43210168920
