"We are working to establish if Piotr has a home in the city and if so, where that is. If you believe you can assist us with these inquiries ,please come forward.

"As it's been over a week since there was any known contact with Piotr, we are growing concerned for his wellbeing and would urge anyone who knows where we can find him to come forward.

"Similarly, if Piotr sees this appeal, then please also get in touch and let us know you are safe."
