According to police, the 31-year-old from Headcorn was in a distressed state when he was last seen.

Speaking on the Saturday following Mr Fisher's disappearance, inspector Carl Howsen said: "Christopher is autistic and was distressed when he went missing. If you see him, please call us and do not approach him because it will scare him and cause him more distress.

"He is reported to be wearing dark trousers and either a blue rain coat or a navy blue zip-up hooded top.

"We remain concerned for Christopher’s welfare and keen to reunite him with his family as quickly as possible."
