Police officers have been leafleting rail passengers in a desperate search to find missing Michael Denon-Ross.

Michael disappeared from his Gloucester home on Halloween and police are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

It's hoped rail passengers could hold vital clues to finding the 59 year old, who is believed to have caught the Cardiff train from Gloucester at about 9.26pm last Thursday (31st).

Officers handed out leaflets at Gloucester railway station, and Cheltenham in an attempt to trigger memories of the man from the Horton Road area.

Michael has a serious mental illness and does not have any medication with him, so concern for his welfare is mounting.

It is known that he may head for secluded areas or ditches, and dog walkers throughout the county have been urged to look out for him.
