To keep an eye out for David Hannam. He is 80 years old and the grandfather of an old school friend of mine.

(Info below has been copied from the Facebook page)

David was last seen on Saturday 24/11 at his local Martins news agent in his village picking up his morning paper.

He hasn't been seen since (possible sighting in village on Sat afternoon) Have you seen this man!? He has no illness' and this is very out of character for David so please share this picture as much as you can to get David home soon.

David is described as 5' 10" tall, of stocky build with thin balding grey hair, and bushy grey eyebrows. He was last seen wearing a navy coloured fleece/cardigan with brown leather buttons and a black hat with flaps covering the ears known as a 'deer stalker hat' and possibly a pair of gloves.

Residents in the local areas are being urged to check their gardens, sheds and outbuildings for any sign of shelter.

Please share this picture as much as possible wherever in the UK you are. David has lived in a few different areas and if confused, may return to somewhere he can remember. The more people that see David's face the better!

Thank you.

Thanks Bob, I'm crap at thread titles. I should have been more controversial to get everyone's attention wink.
