Police in Blackpool are appealing for information about the whereabouts of an 86-year-old man missing from his home in Blackpool.

Eric Hargate has been missing from Sylvester Rest Home on Reads Avenue since around noon on Sunday.

Police say they are concerned for his welfare.

Mr Hargate suffers from dementia and is extremely deaf.

He is described as a white, of slight build, and short at approximately 5ft 2in.

Police say he was last seen wearing a very unusual grey wig, similar to that of a Crown Court judge, beige cardigan, beige trousers and possibly a white t-shirt.

Anybody who thinks they have seen Mr Hargate or know of his current whereabouts is asked to contact Lancashire Police on 101.
