A man from Islington has been missing for over a week and his family have turned to the public to help locate him.
Svetlozar Yotov, 30, has been missing since last Saturday, October 9, and was last seen by a close friend on the evening of Friday, October 8.
Svetlozar has been described by his family as a white male, 175cm tall with dark brown, medium short hair, brown eyes and is of slim build.

He may also have been wearing a navy blue jacket with orange detailing when he went missing.
Svetlozar lives in Islington near Angel Station and none of his friends or housemates were made aware of any plans he may have had to leave for a period of time.
His cousin told MyLondon: “We have tried ringing his phone, both last Saturday and Sunday the phone rang but he never picked up or called back. Since Monday his phone has been switched off.
“My cousin is an adult, aged 30 but always stays in contact with us over the week, often calling his mother to check in every other day. He is not one to leave mysteriously and not get in touch with anyone.
“The fact that he has been missing for this long and hasn’t been in touch is extremely concerning, especially since his phone has remained switched off. He does not have any criminal history nor has he ever been involved in criminal activity.
“He does not take any medication nor did he recently express any mental health concerns to us or any of his friends, including the close friend he was with last Friday night. We believe that he is not currently in any intimate relationship.
“As far as I am aware, the police are trying to explore ways of reaching him by tracking his usage of his bank card through TouchPay as well.
