Appeal to trace missing Peckham man
09 June 2012
Police are appealing for information to help trace the whereabouts of a missing pensioner from Peckham.
Patrick Connelly, 83, was last heard from at approx 13:00hrs on Thursday 7 June when one of his daughters spoke to him on the phone. It was believed that the last sighting of Patrick was the previous day, Wednesday 6 June, when another of his daughters visited him at his home in Linden Grove, Peckham at approx 18:00hrs.
Officers have since been informed that Patrick may have been spotted by a neighbour close to his home address on Friday 8 June. At that time he was wearing a flat cap, a grey overcoat, grey trousers and brown shoes.
Patrick is described as a white man, of slim build with thinning grey hair. He is without his Freedom Pass, wallet and phone.
Patrick suffers from a serious medical condition which requires regular medication and regular supervision. It is not believed Patrick has any medication with him.
His family, and the police, are growing increasingly worried for Patrick's welfare as more time passes since he was last seen.
Anyone who may have seen Patrick, or who knows of his whereabouts, is asked to contact Southwark CID on 101 and quote '12MIS018193'.
