AN appeal has been launched to help trace a missing man who may be in York.

Stuart McCulloch, from Walthamstow in London, has not been seen since leaving his home at 12:30pm last Monday, February 17.

His family are now very concerned for his welfare.

Mr McCulloch, 56, is described as white, 6ft, of large build with light brown hair. Police in London say he has strong links to Hull and frequently visits York.

He was last seen wearing a plain green shirt, cream trousers, black leather shoes and a black knee length 'Parka' style raincoat.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or charity Missing People on 116 000.
