If you check for marriages on Freebmd, there are only 3 showing for a Robert Bunn (no middle name). 2 are in the North-East.

2 other people possibly have him in their trees on here.
Have you contacted them?

he looks to be the 3rd child of 5, do any of his siblings know where he went?

Very chance he is no longer alive, given his age. Did he marry?
