POLICE today said they were concerned for the welfare of a man from Leeds who has gone missing.

Stephen Pattison, 50, from Seacroft, was last seen on Friday, March 20.

Mr Pattison is described as white, 5ft 8in tall and of slim build with receding grey hair and prominent front teeth.

He often wears a blue three-quarter-length jacket and black trousers and carries a large red rucksack.

Leeds District CID’s Det Insp Andy Welbourn said: “Mr Pattison is described as someone who never misses work and it is out of character for him to go missing like this.

“He likes to visit pubs and has been known to go camping in local woods.

“It is possible he may be sleeping rough in the area.

“We are concerned for his welfare and need to know that he is okay.

“I would ask anyone who has seen him or who knows his whereabouts to contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the missing person co-ordinators at Leeds District Safeguarding Unit via West Yorkshire Police’s 101 number.
