West Yorkshire Police have released CCTV footage of the last known sighting of missing 83-year-old David Hardcastle.

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

David was last seen on a towpath of the Shepley Bridge Marina in Mirfield at around 8.30am on 10 October and was later reported missing.

His car, which is a Silver Nissan Micra, was parked just after 8am in the car park of the Ship Inn on Steanard Lane.

Extensive investigations are being carried out in the area, including underwater searches.

He is described as white, 5ft 7” tall, slim build with grey hair and moustache. He was also last seen wearing a navy blue coat, grey trousers and dark shoes.

We are increasingly concerned for Mr Hardcastle’s welfare due to his vulnerability and are urgently calling for information as to his current whereabouts.

We hope the CCTV footage will help to jog people’s memory and potentially recall any further sightings of him in the area.

It is important that we trace his whereabouts as quickly as possible and I would urge anyone who was in the area at this time to think back and let us know if they have any information that will help us trace his movements.

– Detective Sergeant Mike Smith, Kirklees CID
