Police have launched a fresh campaign to find a missing 81-year-old pensioner.

James Black was last seen one week ago after leaving his flat on Upper Highgate Street in Birmingham on Thursday 11 June.

The image, taken from CCTV at Lloyds TSB bank on 8 June, shows the pensioner visiting the New Street branch and taking cash out of his account at around 9.10am.

The CCTV image shows a clearer picture of Mr Black and we are hoping that someone remembers him and knows of his whereabouts.

"This is totally out of character for him and he has never been missing before, which makes his disappearance all the more worrying. "He has never had a bus pass and he doesn’t have a mobile phone.

" Needless to say we are now very concerned for Mr Black and are desperately urging people to help in our efforts to find him."
