A 77-year-old man has been reported missing in Lowestoft.

Police are searching for the man, called David, who is described as white, 5ft 2ins tall and of medium build.

He is clean shaven with short brown hair and was last seen wearing a long brown coat and navy trousers.

Officers say he has a hearing aid but no other distinguishing features.

In an appeal posted on Facebook, officers said: “He is not local, just visiting for the day with family when he was separated from them around the South Pier area shortly after lunchtime.

“He is from Norfolk and therefore may be trying to use public transport to make his way towards Norwich.

“He is fully mobile and is thought to be carrying nothing.”

Police in the town have urged anyone with information about his whereabouts to get in touch after his disappearance.

Anyone who sees the man is urged to call Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD 230.
