The Bridgewater man told his travel partner he went out to ‘buy cigarettes’ before he disappeared and never returned.
Phil has ‘early onset dementia’, according to a missing person person report made to Benidorm Policia Nacional.
Pictures of him have now been widely shared on social media as well as leading UK news sites.
