Appeal for help to find vulnerable man missing from Kidderminster

West Mercia Police is appealing for help from the public in tracing a missing 61-year-old man.

Keith Knights, of Chester Road North, Kidderminster, was reported missing on Wednesday, 30 August.  

He was last seen on Chester Road North near to the Land Oak traffic lights at around 5.30pm on Tuesday 29 August, and has not returned home or been seen since.

Keith is described as being white, around 5ft 6ins tall, average build and walks with a hunched posture.  He has grey hair with a tinge of blond which is usually worn swept back.

He is known in the area for wearing light coloured clothing. He was last seen wearing a light grey or beige jacket with baggy pockets and cream coloured trousers described as chinos.

Another recent sighting describes him as wearing a lime green bomber style jacket and jeans, with trainers.

We acknowledge that there is no picture currently available of Keith, officers' hope that the description is distinctive enough for the public to recall seeing him.

Police are growing increasingly concerned for Keith's health and well-being.

Investigating officer Inspector Lisa Duncan for West Mercia Police said: "After conducting extensive enquiries we are still unclear as to where Keith currently is and are keen to locate him to ensure he is safe and well.

"We are appealing to the public in the hope that someone may have seen him or may recognise him from the description and may have information on his location."

Police urge anyone who has seen Keith or a man matching his description to call 101 and quote incident number 196s of 30 August 2017.
