6:03 am on 24 November 2012

Police are concerned for the safety of an Auckland man missing since Thursday.

Arthur Eddie Cooper, 62, was last seen by his family at his home in the North Shore suburb of Birkdale in the afternoon when he went outside to retrieve some items from his car.

Police say his disappearance is out of character, but at this stage there is no evidence of foul play.

Ground and aerial searches were carried on Thursday and Friday, but so far there has been no sign of him.

Police are appealing for any sightings of Mr Cooper, who was wearing a short sleeved navy blue shirt, blue jeans and a faded blue hat.
