Police say they're concerned for the welfare of a missing elderly man from Blackpool.
Leslie Atkinson, known as Les, 89, was last seen at his home on Bright Street last night.
His family and friends haven’t heard from him since.
Les has links to the Leeds area and speaks with a Yorkshire accent.
“We are especially worried for Mr Atkinson given his age and vulnerability.
"On top of that he isn’t dressed for the especially warm conditions and is in receipt of regular medication which he needs but we don’t believe he has in his possession.
"He may also appear to be confused. “If you have seen him or know where he is, please get in contact with us immediately.”
- Anybody who sees Les should contact Lancashire Police on 101.
