CONCERNS are growing for the welfare of a 65-year-old man who has gone missing from his home in County Durham.
Thomas Potts was last seen on August 25 by his son Anthony.
He has family connections in Wales and it was believed he could be there, however it is now thought that from early October he has been in Inverness and may still be in that area.
Police are concerned for his well being because he takes medication which he is believed to have left behind.
Inspector Simon Orton from Durham Constabulary commented: “We know that Thomas likes to travel around the UK using public transport; however it is unusual for him to be out of contact with his family for such a long time. Thomas’ family are obviously very concerned for his safety.
“There is a suggestion that he may now have moved on from the Walesarea and travelled to Inverness where we believe he was on 6th October. We would ask anyone who has seen him to get in touch. We also know that Thomas has a mobile phone and would ask him to get in touch with us directly so that we know he is safe and we can re-assure his family.”
Thomas is described as being white, 5’7” tall with a medium build and has short grey curly hair.
Anyone who might have seen Thomas since Thursday,August 25 is asked to contact Durham Constabulary on 0345 6060 365.
