Police are becoming increasingly concerned for missing Sunderland man Michael O'Neill.
Mr O'Neill was last seen leaving his home address in the city centre at around 5.30pm on Monday, December 3.
He is white, approximately 5' 4" to 5' 6" tall, of slim build, with greying unstyled hair, and wearing glasses which possibly have a gold thick rim.
He was last seen wearing jeans and a navy jacket with a blue t-shirt underneath.
Mr O'Neill is in ill health and walks slowly, with some difficulty.
"It's now been seven days since Mr O'Neill was last seen and understandably his family are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
***We're urging him, or anyone who knows his whereabouts, to contact police as a matter of urgency so we can ensure he is okay."*
- Superintendent Derek Scott
