89-year-old Halifax man missing in London

Police are appealing for help to find an 89-year-old man from Halifax who has gone missing in London.

Josef Kuzio

Josef Kuzio, who is Ukrainian, left his home on Wednesday, October 21, to travel to London by coach to visit the Embassy of Ukraine, in Holland Park. The embassy confirmed he did attend but he has not been seen since.

Mr Kuzio is described white, about 5ft 3ins tall, slim, with grey hair. He was wearing a grey suit, a green parka type coat and a flat cap. He walks with a limp.

It is out of character for Mr Kuzio to go missing like this and his family are very concerned. He only had a relatively small amount of money with him and he does not have a mobile phone.

Given his age we are very concerned for his welfare and urgently need to hear from anyone who has seen him or who has any information that could assist in tracing him."
