The family of a missing man from Gloucester who has a serious mental illness has issued a desperate appeal for him to return.

Michael Denon-Ross, 59, has been missing from the Horton Road area of Gloucester for six days.

He has a serious mental illness and his family is especially concerned because he doesn't have any medication with him.

He also said: “We are becoming increasingly worried as it has now been six days since my dad’s disappearance and we’re concerned that he will struggle without any medication which he vitally needs.

"This is causing our family a huge amount of distress and all we want is for him to be found safe and well."

Officers from Gloucestershire Police have been working with SARA (Severn Area Rescue Association) and NPAS (National Police Air Service) to try and find Michael.

It's believed he caught a train from Gloucester at around 9.30pm on Thursday (31 October).

He is described as having brown/grey balding hair and was last seen wearing a brown jacket with a blue striped shirt and dark trousers.

He's around 5ft 11 inches tall and often wears a green cap.

Anyone who has seen him or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call 101 quoting incident 478 of 31 October.
