62-year-old missing man Richard Ellis-Robinson was last seen in Nuneaton yesterday (Sunday, 21 August), close to the town’s George Eliot Hospital.

He was reported as missing today (Monday, 22 Auugst), after he had failed to return to his home in Earl Shilton.

Richard’s family, and Leicestershire Police officers, are both ‘very concerned’ for his safety. And, he suffers with short-term memory loss, so he may look confused.

He can also become anxious in noisy, crowded areas, so it is thought that he may have headed towards a park, or open space.

It is believed that Richard is travelling on foot, so he is likely to still be in the Nuneaton or Hinckley areas.

He has been described as white, 5ft 7ins tall and of a medium build. He has short grey hair.

When he was last spotted, he was wearing blue jeans, a blue T-shirt, a dark coloured jacket with a grey stripe on it, and ‘smart’ black shoes.

A Leicestershire Police spokesperson has urged those who think they may have seen Richard to call the police through the non-emergency number of 101, quoting incident 200 of 22 August.
