Artur Rej was last seen on January 7 in Harehills.

Officers have been carrying out "extensive enquiries" to try and track down Artur but have so far failed to do so. West Yorkshire Police are now appealing for the local community to come forward with any information they may have on where Artur is.

The 41-year-old, who is originally from Lithuania, is from the Sandhurst Road area of Harehills.
