A pensioner who has medical issues has now been missing for five days.

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

West Yorkshire Police say they think the pensioner may have travelled to Bridlington.

Mr Beecher is described as white, about 5ft 6in tall, of large build, with white hair around the sides of his head and bald on top. Police said he usually wears a flat cap and a thick black or brown coat, even in warm weather.

PC 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 or who has any information on his current whereabouts to contact us.”
