Officers involved in the search for a missing Leicestershire man are urging local residents to be vigilant.

David Crookes, 60, from North Kilworth, left his home address at about 9.40am on Friday morning (15 December) and has not returned.

There have been sightings of him since then and most recently he was seen at 10.45am this morning (Sunday) on Catthorpe Road in Shawell.

David is white, 5ft 9ins tall and slim build. He has short grey hair and wears glasses. When he left home he was wearing a dark coloured jacket, dark trousers, shoes or boots and carrying a khaki coloured military style rucksack.

David is described as a private man who likes to walk and regularly uses public transport to visit the city centre, Lutterworth and Market Harborough.

It is completely out of character for David to be missing and to stay out overnight and as the hours pass by his family are becoming increasingly worried about him.

Detective Sergeant Tom Brenton from the Missing Persons Engagement Team, said: “I would like to appeal to residents in the villages of Shawell, Catthorpe, Swinford, Cotesbach and surrounding areas to help us to find David.

“I’d ask that you check any sheds or outbuildings you may have on your property in case he has wandered inside for shelter.

“If you spot David he is unlikely to engage with you but I would ask that you stay with him and call 999 immediately.”
