54-year-old man missing from Shirley

He was reported missing yesterday morning when he failed to return home from a job interview in Worcester.

To disappear like this is out of character for Christopher and we, like his family and friends, are concerned for his welfare.

From our initial inquiries it appears that on the day he went missing Christopher had a job interview at 9am in Worcester. It is thought that he travelled by train from Shirley railway station for the meeting.

There is also a suggestion that he may be staying at a hotel in the city. We're working hard to substantiate that information and would urge Worcester hoteliers to contact us immediately if Christopher Parry or anyone matching his description has checked in with them.

– Inspector Adrian Taylor, Solihull Police

Christopher Parry is described as white, 6'2 tall and broad. He has brown eyes and short grey-white hair. He has contacts in Colchester, Essex.

At the time of his disappearance it is believed that he was wearing a dark suit.
