Police are growing concerned for the welfare of a missing 72-year-old man from Plumstead.

Alan Antchandie was last spoken to on February 6, when he stated he was on a bus but was confused and did not disclose his location.

He is known to frequent the bus network using a freedom pass, travelling to central and eastern London boroughs.

There are concerns for his safety as he has dementia and is not suitably dressed for the cold and wet weather.

He is described as a light skinned black male of thin build, with short white afro hair.

He usually wears a denim jacket and jeans and carries a number of bags with him.

Officers urge anyone with information of his whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000.
