Fears are growing over the welfare of a 29-year-old from Clapton who has been missing since Wednesday morning.
Adam Connolly, 29, a woodworker, was last seen on his bike in Prout Road, Clapton.
His disappearance is understood to be completely out-of-character.
His friend Matthew Collins, 36, of Clapton, said: “Adam has a very close-knit group of friends and family, who all love him dearly.

Close friend Jack Savidge, of Friendly Fires, has launched a missing person appeal on the band’s Facebook page and via Twitter.
His father John Connolly, of Horsham, said: “I’ve been amazed by the coordinated activities his friends have brought to bear through Facebook, posters, Twitter and social media.”
Adam is approximately 5’8”, medium build with short black hair, a short black moustache and stubble.
He was last seen wearing blue suede trainers, a black bomber jacket and dark jeans. He was also carrying a black shoulder bag.
He was riding a vintage Roberts bike described as pistachio green with short black straight handlebars and with a wooden mud flap on the rear.
He has two small tatoos - one with two triangles on his right elbow region and another of a crescent on his left forearm.
