Concern for missing St Leonards man

Police are becoming increasingly concerned for a 66-year-old man from St Leonards who has been missing for several days.

Paul Osmond left his home address last Thursday (April 18) but was last seen at St Mary’s House in Eastbourne last Sunday (April 22) when he went to visit his social worker. He left after being told he would have to wait for 20 minutes and has not been seen since.

A police spokesman said: “Paul has left his address with his belongings and it is possible he has either moved to the Blackpool area or is staying in Eastbourne. However, he is vulnerable due to his mental health and we want to know that he is safe and well.

“If anyone has any knowledge of Paul’s whereabouts, or thinks they may recognise him, we would urge them to call police on 101 (Sussex) quoting serial 0410 of April 19.”

Paul has been described as white, of stocky build, 5ft 4ins tall, with short, cropped, greying hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, although he has a change of clothes with him.
