Concern grows for missing Weston OAP

PUBLISHED: 10:01 25 October 2015 | UPDATED: 10:01 25 October 2015


POLICE say they are growing increasingly concerned for the wellbeing of a Weston pensioner who has been missing since Friday lunchtime.

Robert Davies, aged 71, was last seen in the Clevedon Road area of town.

Around that time he also withdrew some money from the NatWest ATM in High Street, but has not been seen since.

Robert is a white man, about 5ft 3ins tall, and of stocky build, with blue eyes and grey short hair, balding on the top.

He is thought to be wearing a black jumper which features the word ‘Tiverton’ in white lettering, plus blue jeans and black Velcro-fastening shoes.

A police spokesman said: “Robert enjoys a drink and may have called into a pub in the resort centre but more likely might have bought alcohol from a convenience store or off licence.

“He is a very private person and is likely to be on his own and may appear confused and disorientated because he does not have medication with him.

“We are keen to hear from Robert or anyone who may have seen him, particularly those who work in convenience stores and off licences.

“It is possible that he may have sheltered overnight in a garden shed, outbuilding or garage and we are asking people to check any outbuildings.”

Anyone with information about Robert’s whereabouts is asked to contact Weston police on 101, quoting missing person reference 5215025647.
