Cheltenham Festival goer still missing

A pensioner from Rotherham who is visiting the Cheltenham Festival remains missing on Wednesday.

Friends of 70 year old Philip Lucas last saw him around 5.50pm on Tuesday.

He was supposed to be staying in Cranham during the week of the festival.

Gloucestershire Constabulary have told ITV News West Country that they received a report of a possible sighting of Mr Lucas in the Kings Arms public house around 11.15pm on Tuesday, but there has been no confirmed information about his whereabouts.

Foot belongs to a man

Police have not been able to identify where the foot came from but say forensic tests reveal it is likely to have come from a man, white, older than 17 and between 164 and 178 cm tall.

The foot was found in a size nine and a half Vision-brand trainer and a dark grey sock. The trainer was grey and blue with a white rubber sole and a blue V logo on the side.

We have always kept an open mind about how the foot got there. Officers carried out a thorough search of the area it was found and DNA tests confirmed that the foot belongs to a man but no other clues have been identified and sadly we still don’t know the person’s identity.
