Police are concerned for the welfare of a pensioner who has gone missing from his home in Doncaster.
Colin Smith was last seen at 8.40pm on Friday April 28 at his home in the Thorne area of the town.
The 82-year-old is described as slim, around 5ft 10ins tall, with short grey hair and a slight beard. It is not known what he was wearing at the time of his disappearance.
Detectives investigating the reported rape of a 16-year-old girl in the Balby area of Doncaster earlier this week have closed the case after concluding that the incident did not happen.
Police carried out a thorough investigation following the allegations.
They now say that fresh information received this evening suggests 'this incident did not take place.'
“While we are confident this incident didn’t occur, we will work with our partner agencies to ensure that the complainant receives all of the support she needs as at the heart of this matter is a child who requires support.”
Police are appealing for help to find a man who has gone missing from Doncaster.
