Police in Poole are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 67-year-old man who is missing from the town – with a picture of the missing man being released.
David Horsford, of Samson Road, left his home at around 7.30am this morning, Saturday 16 April 2016, after telling his family he was going for a short walk
David is white, five feet eleven inches tall, of slim build and was wearing a black Berghaus jacket and green Craghoppers trousers.
The NPAS helicopter and marine section have been assisting local officers with the search for David.
Chief Inspector Jim Beashel, of Dorset Police, said: “I understand that David has not been in the right frame of mind recently and cannot walk very far. For him to have not have returned home is completely out of character.
"We are releasing a photo of David in the hope that the public may know of his whereabouts. He was wearing the same jacket pictured when he left the house, but has lost some weight since the photo was taken.
“I’d urge anyone who knows of David’s whereabouts or who has seen a man matching his description to contact the police straight away.
“His family are very concerned for his wellbeing and we simply want to know he is safe and well."
Anyone with any information or knowledge as to David’s whereabouts should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 16:145.
