POLICE ARE becoming increasingly concerned for a missing a Polish man and are urging anyone who spots him to contact officers urgently.

Sebastian Michalak, 31, was last seen on the morning of Friday 17 June in Ochrewell Avenue, Huddersfield. There have been no confirmed sightings of him since then and has not made any contact with his family or friends.

Mr Michalak is described as a white, 6ft and medium build. He lives and works in the Huddersfield and Batley area, and is known to have links to Halifax.

Detective Inspector Ian Mottershaw, of Kirklees CID, said: “It is now a week-and-a-half since Sebastian was last seen and we are very concerned for his welfare. We need to speak to him as a matter of urgency to check he is safe and well.

“Likewise, if anyone has any information about his whereabouts or thinks they might have seen him then I would urge those people to contact us as soon as possible.

“He left his wallet and personal belongings at home and this disappearance is out of character. His family are also very concerned for Sebastian’s welfare.

“We would ask anyone who has seen Sebastian or with information about his whereabouts to please contact the police. Similarly, we would ask Sebastian himself to make contact either with the police or his family to confirm that he is safe and well.”
