Police have just knocked on door doing a search for an 84 yr old gentleman who has gone missing. Last seen Landican area about 2.30pm today.

The search helicopters have been scouring the area for ages tonight.

He was wearing a flat cap and a coat.

Hope he's found very soon and hope it's ok putting this on the forum.

They had a picture but I am not able to put that on this post. The verbal description given was, 'flat cap and coat'. So you can be cynical.
I'm sure any 84 yr old could be prominent,particuarly if one is missing. I think we tend to observe more now than we used to.
Let's hope so anyway.

Hi Granny, is there any more News on the man? The helicopter was above most of the afternoon and evening and the police were searching the alleys in our road. They were still searching the fields around Landican at 6.30am this morning!

No Kittykat, I don't know anymore. They were helicopter searching yesterday pm proir to the National starting. Of course, at that time we didn't know what/who for. They have searched all down the back of Thingwall where the fields are.
So much effort, must surely find him soon.

Spoke to the police on my way out, seems he lives just by me. Still not found but more info....He walks with a hunch and wearing brown/beige trousers.
However on my way back home there was a rather large police presence behind the wall at what appears to be the Drs surgery land opposite Landican fields. There was police on quad bikes and the same officer I spoke to was there, all looking at the ground.
Really hope they have found some sort of clue and not the alternative...so desperately sad.

Sounds like the same place Santos. It's all taped off now.
His neighbour has just told me that he's not long lost his dog and since then has gone so far so fast downhill.

It really breaks my heart to think of someone lost, confused and alone.

Can only suggest that you see what Wirral Talk is saying as that is where I saw a poster announce that he has been found alive.
