“He is in need of regular medication and we don’t know whether he has this in his possession. Additionally, he suffers from learning difficulties and this increases both his family’s and our concerns for Mr Allen’s welfare.

“If you think you know where he is, please call us.”

Mr Allen is described as white, 6ft tall, of stocky build with grey, receding hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident reference LC-20170101-1570.
