MISSING MAN: Lesley Kriebel.

Police have "critical" concerns for an autistic man missing for more than three weeks.

Lesley Kriebel, 55, went missing from his home in Crawford Gr, Naenae, Lower Hutt, on November 24.

Senior Sergeant Steve Harwood said there had been several reported sightings of him since then from across the Wellington region but they had all been ruled out.

"We are critically concerned for his safety," he said.

Police have previously said Kriebel had not been seeking shelter or taking medication and that his mental health might be deteriorating.
