Police teams search for missing senior

First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

Police and sniffer dogs continued the search for a missing senior yesterday.

Teams of officers scoured sections of the Railway Trail in Paget as part of the hunt for Robert Douglas.

The 72-year-old was last seen in person near his home in My Lord's Bay Lane in Hamilton Parish at about 4pm on March 24.

He was captured on a CCTV camera as he walked east on Angle Street in Hamilton, near its junction with North Street, just after 7.30pm the same day.

Mr Douglas, who has Alzheimer's disease, is between 6ft 2in and 6ft 3in tall, slim, with a dark complexion.

He was wearing a faded blue hat, a blue sweat top with a dark, long-sleeved shirt underneath, long black sweatpants, long red socks and black sneakers with white trim when last seen.

The father of four's family said earlier this week they were “very concerned about his welfare and safe return”.

Anyone with information that could help the inquiry should contact police on 247-1624 or 911.
