Graham Crowter was last seen at around 11am on Sunday leaving the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston.

West Midlands Police believe he may have used public transport to travel to the city centre and then towards Tamworth or Sutton Coldfield.

Officers now have reason to believe Graham may place himself at risk and are concerned for his welfare.

He has been described as white, 5ft 7 ins tall, with short straight white hair. He was last seen wearing a dark jacket, striped top, dark trousers and sunglasses.

We need help from the public to find Graham as quickly as possible.

He needs urgent medical attention as he doesn’t have any of his medication with him. If you’ve seen her please get in touch with us as soon as you can.

– DC Stefanie Smith, from Birmingham Police

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by contacting the Missing People charity on 116 000.
