The Caucasian man, who was the lone occupant of the van, is described as having dark eyes, a brown and white coloured beard, a large nose, round glasses and short dark hair that comes down over his forehead. He is possibly mid-40s to late 50s in age.

Police have not been able to locate the vehicle or driver.
