Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) officials are trying to contact 67-year-old Graham Johnson, of Hightown, after he went missing on the holiday islands on December 3.

A missing persons’ charity has also appealed for information about Mr Johnson’s whereabouts, nearly six weeks after he was last seen.

It is believed that Mr Johnson was last seen on the beach adjacent to the Hotel Riu Funana, where he had been staying.

A FCO spokesman said: “We can confirm that we have received a report that a British national has gone missing in Cape Verde and his name is confirmed as Graham Johnson.

“We are in touch with his family and are ready to provide consular support to them.”
