Appeal to find Missing Holidaymaker in Bournemouth
Police in Bournemouth are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing man – with officers releasing a picture of the holidaymaker.
Philip Barnard, from London and aged 62, has been staying at a hotel near Branksome Dean Chine with his wife for the past few days.
He was due to return to the hotel at around 3pm yesterday, Monday 13 February 2012 – he did not return and his family are concerned for his welfare.
Sergeant Andy Lovering, of Bournemouth police, said: “I understand that Philip has been rather confused of late and he is not familiar with the local area. The fact that he has not made contact with his wife and has not returned to their accommodation is most unusual and clearly a cause for concern.”
Philip is white, around six feet two inches tall, of a slim build, with dark grey hair that is balding on the top. He was wearing a black hooded jacket, black jeans and brown shoes. He may have been wearing glasses.
Sergeant Lovering continued: “I am appealing for anyone who has seen Philip, or knows of his whereabouts, to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible. I would urge Philip to get in contact with us – you are not in any trouble, we simply want to know that you are safe and well.”
Anyone with any information or knowledge as to Philip’s whereabouts should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 13:402.
