Police are appealing for help to trace a 65 year old man who has gone missing from Todmorden.

Eric Dale was reported missing from his home in Shore Green, Cornholme at 10.20pm on Friday August 23.

Eric walks with a limp and the area where he lives is within difficult rural terrain and there are concerns he may have fallen.

He is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall, of stocky build, with dark hair. He usually wears a blue baseball cap and is a familiar figure to people who regularly sits near Todmorden market place.
