There are "grave concerns" for an Alexandra man not seen since Sunday last week.

Christopher James Bates, 22, was last seen at a Z service station on Tarbert St, wearing a grey hoodie, white T-shirt, dark shorts and sneakers.

He hasn't used his bank account or cellphone since then.

Mr Bates is slim, about 180cm tall, with short to medium length brown hair and brown eyes.

LandSAR and police will be searching the wider Alexandra area on Saturday, but would like to hear from the public if they see him or have information.
