CONCERNS have been raised for the welfare of a Harrogate man, missing since yesterday.
Roger Walker, 41, was last seen by his partner at their home in Bramham Drive, Harrogate, at about midday on Friday, and North Yorkshire Police officers have conducted extensive searches in the area since he was reported missing.
Their searches are currently focussed in the area around Oakdale Golf Course, and members of the public have been urged to report any sightings of anyone matching Mr Walker’s description.
