POLICE have released an urgent appeal for sightings of a Coventry man who went missing from his home on Thursday evening.

Richard Hill, 47, was last seen by his family at around 4.45pm when he left his home in Roland Mount, Holbrooks.

He is described as just over 6ft tall, balding and wears glasses. He was last seen wearing a blue zip-up fleece, red long sleeved top and dark blue denim jeans.

“We are becoming increasingly concerned for Richard and need to find him,” said Inspector Caren Fletcher. “This is totally out of character and his family are understandably worried.

“We just want to make sure Richard is okay and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen him to contact us as a matter of urgency.

“He’s a keen dog walker and is known to visit Prologis Park… We are continuing to search the surrounding area for him.”

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling the Missing person charity on 116 000.
