Inspector David Parr of Dorset Police said, "Nick left the area unexpectedly and has not been in contact with family or friends, which is out of character. I would urge anyone who has seen Nick, or a man matching the description given, to please contact Dorset Police."

"Also, I am appealing to anyone who has seen the vehicle either traveling in the area or parked up locally to please come forward. Finally, if you see this appeal, Nick — please contact us or your family as we all just want to make sure you are safe and well," Parr added.

Fisher's close celebrity friend Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall also appealed for information and said he is concerned for his "dearest friend". "I never thought I would be using social media for this, but my very dearest friend Nick Fisher, who some of you will know from his journalism and telly work, has gone missing. He left his home in the village of Hooke near Bridport in his silver Nissan Navara YE71 DFA pickup on Tuesday afternoon, with his brown and white spaniel. The car was seen just half an hour later on a police camera near Dorchester," the 'River Cottage' celebrity chef posted on Twitter.

Fisher then went on to write the children’s drama 'The Giblet Boys' about three brothers, Pud, Kevin, and Scurvy, and their adventures. The drama also helped him earn a BAFTA in 2006.
