Police in Lincolnshire have released an updated picture of missing 83-year-old Jack Foster, known as Derek Foster.

He was last seen when he left Grantham Hospital on Tuesday 23rd December after treatment for a fractured shoulder. He was supposed to go home to Lilley Street, Long Bennington, but never arrived.

Police have superimposed a pair of glasses onto the original image released of Mr Foster in the hope it will jog someone's memory. He was apparently never seen without them.

When he left hospital he was wearing a dark brown overcoat and dark trousers. He has a fractured left shoulder so cannot move his arm. His walk is described as a ‘shuffle’.
