Police have issued CCTV footage of a missing man who was last seen a week ago. John Plant, aged 60, was last seen at his home on Wenlock Way, West Gorton, on Wednesday 19 February. He has been suffering from depression in recent months, possibly brought on by his difficulty in getting employment.
John is believed to have left Cosgrove House on Wenlock Way between 10.45pm on Wednesday and the morning of the following day. He does wear glasses but did not take them with him and may have a black woollen hat similar to the one in the video.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Pester, based at Longsight, said: "It's now been a week since John disappeared and his family are desperate for any news. "We have been following up a number of leads but, as yet, John has yet to make contact.
"He has not been missing before but his family tell us he has been very down recently, possibly brought on by his extreme difficulty in getting back into employment.
"He's clearly a proud man who wants to work and, in the current economic climate, I'm sure people will understand how his continued unemployment has left him upset.
"He also suffers from diabetes and asthma and it's not known if he has his medication with him. His family are beside themselves with worry and just want to hear from him - it's as simple as that. "John, if you are reading this, please get in touch to let everyone know you are ok."
