The family of a marine who has been reported missing from RMB Chivenor are urging him to get in contact.
Jonathan Lyons, 26, was reported missing from the Braunton base at around 10.25am yesterday.
His car has since been discovered parked outside his father John Lyons’ house in Llangollen, North Wales.
However, the marine has not yet been located and his family are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
John Lyons said: “We’re absolutely devastated. We don’t know where he is. We’re all extremely worried and are just thinking the worst. We just want him to contact his parents.”
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman confirmed the force had received reports of a missing person from RMB Chivenor and said police in North Wales were currently searching for the man.
Jonathan is described by his father as being 5ft 8”, of medium build and with light brown hair.
Anyone with information of his whereabouts is asked to contact Devon and Cornwall Police on 101.
