Police are trying to trace a pensioner who has gone missing from a Leeds care home.

Dennis Beecher, 67, was last seen at his care home in Morley at around 10am on Thursday, July 24.

He is described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall, of large build, with a bald patch on top and white hair around the sides.

He usually wears a flat cap and a thick brown or black coat.

Police constable Lee Parker, of the Outer South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Mr Beecher is known to go off for a day or two but normally returns.

“He does have some medical issues and there is concern for him now given the length of time he has been away.

“He has been known to visit Scarborough and Bridlington and it’s possible he could be in those areas although he may still be in the Leeds area.

“We would ask anyone who has seen someone matching his description to contact us.”

Anyone with information can call the District Control Hub at Elland Road via 101.
