are asking the public to help them locate a missing Worcester
man who may be in the Burnham-On-Sea area.
Philip Champken, 59, was last seen by a relative in the city
on September 19th.
The social worker, pictured, is believed to have been in London
for a long period before returning to Worcester where he
is thought to have been seen on October 7th - but without making
direct contact with relatives.
Officers have this week been checking several addresses in the
Brean Sands and Burnham-On-Sea areas which Mr Chamken is known
to have visited.
Mr Champken is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall, of stocky build,
clean-shaven and with cropped dark brown hair that is greying.
He wears a silver SOS talisman on his left wrist and has a surgery
scar on his chest.
"If anyone anywhere believes they know the whereabouts of
Mr Champken - or who recognises his description - we urge them
to call us," a police spokesman said.
Police investigating his disappearance can be contacted on 0300
333 3000, quoting 242S/011010. Information can also be given,
anonymously, to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
