Police renew efforts to find missing Newcastle man Michael Whinham

Police say they are 'desperate' for more information about a missing 31-year-old man from Newcastle.

Michael Richard Whinhan from Oakfield Gardens in Newcastle was reported missing to police on November 23rd.

The last confirmed sighting of Michael was on November 14th and there has been no trace of him or contact from him since.

Police and his family are becoming increasingly worried for his welfare and are asking the public to contact them with any information they might have about Mr Whinham.

Michael has not been seen or heard from since November 14. We have been carrying out enquiries since he was reported missing to us on November 23 however we have been unable to find him or find anyone who has seen him since that date.

We know from family and friends that Michael has a routine and that involves doing things like withdrawing money from his bank at the same time every week, he hasn't done this since he has been missing which is very out of character, very unusual and makes us believe that something might be wrong.
