Concern for missing pensioner

Police are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a vulnerable pensioner who has not been seen for several days at his Sheffield home.

Kent Olivia

Kent Olivia, aged 78, moved to the city from Filey in January to be closer to relatives.

He suffers from dementia and high blood pressure and is on medication, which he is not believed to have taken with him.

Mr Olivia was last seen on Sunday, 8 June, by a friend, but there was no answer when a nurse called at his home on Woodthorpe Road the following morning.

He was reported missing yesterday, 10 June. It is not thought he has been missing before.

Although Mr Olivia suffers from dementia, he is quite independent. Police believe he has taken his bus pass and also found train time tables to North Yorkshire when they searched his property, hinting that he may have returned to Filey.

North Yorkshire Police have searched the area around his former home and found no trace of him.

He is described as white, 5ft 4in tall, slim, bald with a grey thin moustache, brown eyes with brown square-rimmed glasses, red blotches on the back of his neck and is said to be slow on his feet.

He may have been wearing a navy blue Regatta jacket, a two-tone flat cap, a watch with a black strap and carrying a small, green, square-shaped cross-body bag.
