Stephen Colin Beadleson was reported missing from his home address in the Beverley High Road area of Hull after being last seen by his mother at this address at approximately on the morning of Monday 22nd September 2014.

Stephen is described as a white, 6ft tall with a medium build and dark coloured greying hair.

It is not known at this time what clothing Stephen was wearing when he left his home address.

He has been reported missing on one previous occasion several years ago. On that occasion he spent time along the east coast in the Humberside and North Yorkshire area.

There are concerns for Stephen's welfare due to the time he has been missing without having any contact with his family.

Stephen is urged to call the police or his family to confirm he is ok and any contact will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
