An 88-year-old man with dementia has gone missing from his home in St Helens, Merseyside.

Jack Platt was last seen in the early hours of Saturday morning at his supported accommodation in Rainhill.

His family have launched a desperate appeal for help to find him.

They say he may have gone for a walk and got confused, and are asking cyclists and dog walkers to keep an eye out for him.

If you think that you see Jack/Dad then if possible take a photograph and send it to us here. We want to follow up on every likely sighting but we've got very limited resources - a photo really helps us to prioritise.

Thank you all again for all that you've done and you're doing. This has been a tough few days but the overwhelming love and support from you all has been incredible.
