Searches are taking place in Harrogate to try and find a missing 86-year-old with dementia.

He was last seen on CCTV walking along Kent Road, away from his home on Kent Rise, in the direction of Ripon Road, at about 4.15am on Saturday (30th December 2017)

He is believed to be wearing brown cord trousers and a blue jacket.

He is described as being of slim build, with grey hair and glasses, and walks slowly with a stoop, using a walking stick with a curved end.

Dozens of police officers and search and rescue volunteers from Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue have been searching for him using search dogs, CCTV and thermal imaging cameras.

Members of the public, particularly people in Harrogate, are urged to check their gardens and outbuildings.
