An elderly man who suffers from memory problems has lost his car in Gloucester.

Gloucestershire Police is appealing for help to locate the gold Hyundai Accent with the registration DN02 FVO, which is thought to be parked in Gloucester.

The owner, a man in his 70s, was missing for several hours last week after he parked the car and was found later on foot by his son in Matson Avenue.

The vehicle holds great sentimental value to the owner as it belonged to his late wife.

It is thought the car is parked in Gloucester after it travelled on the A40 on Tuesday 26 November shortly after 4pm in the direction of Longford roundabout. Police lines of enquiry have been exhausted and Gloucestershire Constabulary is now seeking the help of the public to try and reunite the man with the car.
