Police investigating the disappearance of a man who has been missing for more than a week have released CCTV footage as they seek information on his whereabouts. 

Nathan Cole, 32, who is from the Notting Hill area, was last in contact with his family at 9.33pm on January 21 in Wandsworth, when he told them he was going to a gig in Camden. 

Since then, he has not been in touch with his family or attended work, and there has been no activity on his phone or bank account. 

He was last week on CCTV walking along Banbury Road in Walthamstow at 11.17pm on January 21.

Officers have carried out extensive enquiries to confirm Nathan’s movements on that evening, with advice sought from police search specialists and the Met’s Specialist Crime Command. 

Police have been able to confirm he bought four cans of lager at a shop in Blackhorse Lane, Walthamstow, at 10.05pm, before getting on the 158 bus in the direction of Chingford.

At 10.55pm, he got off the bus outside Walthamstow Academy, near the junction of Academy Way and Billet Road.

He was then seen on residential CCTV walking along Billet Road around ten minutes later, and walking west along Banbury Road in the direction of the River Lea at 11.17pm. 

While the Banbury Road footage is the last confirmed sighting of Nathan, officers believe his phone was active near the former Ikea store in Glover Drive, Edmonton, at 10.41am on January 22. 

Detective sergeant Julie Morrow, from the Central West Missing Persons Unit, said: “More than a week has gone by since Nathan’s family had any contact with him. They are obviously extremely worried and while we are doing all we can to support them we really need the public’s help as we continue our search.

“We hope very much that we will find Nathan safe and well but with each day that passes, our concerns that he may have come to harm increase. 

“Nathan has been described as an outgoing and gregarious character. He was someone who was very sociable and would engage in conversations with anyone. 

“He knew the Walthamstow area and it is possible he had travelled there to meet with friends or to attend a party or gathering. 

“We urgently want to hear from anyone who saw Nathan late on the night of Saturday, 21 January, early the following morning or at any time since. We would ask anyone who lives in the area he was last seen to check any CCTV or doorbell cameras. 

“We would also like to hear from anyone who spoke to Nathan on the night, who knew of his plans or who knows where he might have gone or who he might have been meeting. No piece of information is too small.” 

Anyone who sees Nathan should call 999. 

Anyone with other information can call 101, giving the reference 23MIS002577.
