Updated: Search for missing York man
Police in York are appealing for help to locate 76-year-old Anthony Atkinson who has been reported missing from home.
Anthony, who is from the Acomb area, was last seen by his family at around 8.30am on Tuesday when he left for a walk.
It is completely out of character for him not to return home and to be out of contact on his mobile phone for so long.
It is also believed he is without his regular medication which has heightened the concern for his welfare and safety.
Anthony is described as white, 5ft 10in tall, with short grey hair and stubble on his face. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, pale blue jumper, light blue jeans and grey shoes. He has a walking stick and walks with a noticeable stoop.
The main photograph that police have is about 10-years-old.
If you have seen a man possibly matching Anthony’s description during Tuesday or you have any information that could help bring him home safely, please get in touch without delay.
