The police are urging the public to report any possible sightings. The footage was taken close to Barnsley town centre on Park Grove on Friday (16 August), the day Brian went missing.

He was captured on CCTV walking along Park Grove at 4.15pm.

He was later sighted just after 8pm outside a Premier Store on Pontefract Road.

Superintendent Sarah Poolman said:

We are becoming increasingly concerned for Brian’s welfare. As you can see from the footage, he walks with a very distinctive stoop.

“We’ve had lots of calls from members of the public over the weekend, and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for your support in this investigation so far.

“Please, keep your calls coming in. If you think you might have seen Brian, I would urge you to get in touch.”
