Missing man 'needs urgent medical attention'

Police are asking for help to find a man who has gone missing from Swindon.

Mark McCarron, 45, was last seen at Great Western Hospital just after 6 o'clock this morning (Sunday 17 July)

Police say he needs urgent medical attention and are asking anyone who sees him to call 999.

Mr McCarron was admitted to the hospital last night but left without being treated.

He was wearing a pea-green t-shirt, black shorts with white stripes on and trainers. He is described as a large build with blond hair and blue eyes.

Volunteers from Wiltshire Search and Rescue (WILSAR), are helping police to search the local area.

We would ask anyone who sees Mark to contact us via 999. His family and friends are very worried about him and I would urge him to get in touch immediately. We don't believe that Mark has his mobile phone with him so may not be able to phone for help.
