Police are urgently calling for the public's help in finding a missing pensioner after a "massive" search proved unsuccessful.

Granville Muir, 75, was last seen at his house in the King Cross area of Halifax on Saturday morning. 

Officers are so concerned for his wellbeing that they have told anyone who sees him to call 999.

We need to find Granville as a matter of urgency. His family are very worried about him and we are too. We are concerned he may have come to some harm. 

He is an elderly and vulnerable man and we are doing everything we can to return him home safe and sound. But we also need the public's help in our search. 

I am appealing directly to anyone who sees him or thinks they see him to get in contact immediately - even if it is old information or turns out not to be him - it can all help our search. 

I would ask people who live within Calderdale to check any out buildings they have in case Granville has taken shelter there. 

Such is our concern for Granville that we are asking anyone who sees him to call the 999 emergency number rather than the 101 non emergency number. 

– Superintendent Owen West, Calderdale Police
