His daughter Lindsey Conway, who lives in Halifax, said: "He walked out in the clothes he was wearing and some money - about three hundred pounds but it could have been more.

"He's a very hands-on person - he doesn't have a credit card or cash card or mobile phone."

Mr Wilkinson is thought to have been wearing similar clothes to these when he was last seen

He and wife Norma had celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary that weekend, but the night before Alan left they had had a minor argument.

Lindsey said: "They had had a little altercation over him watching the snooker final and he had taken himself up to bed.

"It just shows you should make up before bedtime."

Anyone with information about Alan's whereabouts should call North Yorkshire Police on 101 or 01904 618691.
