Baljeev, 24, was last seen with his family at a wedding party at the Sports Connexion on Leamington Road in Ryton on Saturday October 4.

He was reported missing in the early hours of Sunday October 5.

It is thought Baljeev left the venue on foot.

Baljeev’s sister, Haneet, has spoken of her brother and appealed for anyone with any information as to his whereabouts to contact police.

“As a family we are extremely concerned for his safety, this is completely out of character for him and we need to know if he is OK.’

“It is difficult to carry on with normal daily life and we are all struggling with the knowledge he is out there without knowing if he is safe.’

“I want to speak directly to my brother and ask him to call me. If he could just call me and tell me he is alright.

“We were all looking forward to a lovely family Christmas and we all hope and pray that by then he will be back at home with us.’

Baljeev, who is from the Bramcote area of Nottingham, is described as Asian and around 6ft 3ins tall.

He wears glasses and was last seen wearing a slim white shirt with a black jacket and black trousers.

Det Insp Jason Downes, who is leading the investigation, said: “Our search to find Baljeev continues and we are very concerned for his welfare.

“We urge anyone who may have been in Ryton on the night he went missing or has seen anyone matching his description to get in contact.”

Warwickshire Police can be contacted by calling 101 and quoting incident number 16 of October 5.

Alternatively the charity Missing People can be called, in confidence, on 116 000.
