People in Hull are being asked to check sheds and gardens for an elderly man who has been missing since yesterday morning. (Monday January 13, 2020)

Police say they are growing increasingly concerned about 82 year old Donald Francis, who was last seen at around 9 o'clock at his home in Linnaeus Street in the city.

It is thought he may have tried to make his way back to his previous home in Nornabell Street.

One report suggested he had been seen in Bransholme late yesterday afternoon, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Donald is described as being around 5’7” of slim build with white/grey hair. He was thought to be wearing a large blue jacket, red pyjamas bottoms and yellow 'rig' boots.
