Police are urgently appealing for help to find a man who has gone missing from the Erdington area.

Anthony Perks was last seen at his home in Rogerfield Road at around 9pm on Monday 19th September.

The 58-year-old is described as white, 6ft 1ins tall, clean shaven, with short grey hair, fair complexion and blue eyes.

He was last seen wearing a blue coat, blue jeans and a pink shirt with grey and blue stripes.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call the Missing People charity on 116 000.

Anthony is particularly vulnerable as he has a very short term memory and will easily become confused and lose his bearings.

He does have a bus pass with him and may try to travel on local buses. We need members of the public to keep an eye out for him and call 101 if they see him.

The eight-year-old was cycling along Wilton Road at around 3.15pm when he was in collision with a bus.

Emergency services were called and paramedics treated the boy who was taken to hospital with critical injuries, but despite their best efforts he sadly died later that day.

The driver of the bus was spoken to at the scene and officers continue to make enquiries into the collision.

Our thoughts are firmly with the family of the young boy who tragically lost his life yesterday.

The road is a really busy road and we are sure that there are a number of witnesses who have not yet come forward.

I am directly appealing to them to get in touch so we can continue to establish the circumstances that surrounded yesterday’s tragic events.

The family of the young boy are being liaised with by specialist officers and they have asked for their privacy to be respected at this sad time.

– PS Chris Ridge, from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit
