Police issue appeal for help in tracing missing Burnham-On-Sea man

Police issued an appeal on Monday (March 30th) for help in tracking down this Burnham-On-Sea man, who has gone missing.

He visited family members in nearby Droitwich, before travelling to Hull. He then returned to the Midlands, where he visited family members in Bilston, near Wolverhampton, and later travelled to Eardiston in Worcestershire. He was last seen in his camper van at 8.30am on Sunday March 22nd.

Mr Hands is described as a white man, about 5ft 10 ins tall of a heavy build, clean-shaven with short brown hair, grey eyes and a scar above his left eye. It is not known what he was wearing when he went missing.

Anyone spotting Mr Hands is asked to contact police at Burnham on 0845 456 7000, quoting reference number SW/30/09.
