Police re-appeal for help finding Coventry man Anthony Treadgold, now missing for two weeks

POLICE have re-appealed for information on the whereabouts of Anthony Treadgold who has been missing since 4.15pm on October 31.

The 44-year-old is from Canley, is 5ft 9ins tall and of slim / medium build. He has greying hair and was last seen wearing dark trousers and a distinctive black parka coat with a fur-lined hood. He was carrying a multi-coloured CEX draw string bag.

It’s been nearly two weeks since Anthony has been seen.

Police have been following up every possible line of enquiry, including trawling hours of CCTV near his home, his friends’ and family’s homes and Warwick University campus.

It is known he used his bank card at Aldi on Shultern Lane, Coventry at around 3.15pm on October 31. The last sighting on CCTV was near Lynchgate Court on University of Warwick campus just after 4pm.

Anthony made a call on his Nokia 7.2 smartphone shortly after, but his phone has not been used since.

Police have also carried out financial checks, telephone checks, and have spoken with local hospitals and many other agencies.

Specially trained officers are supporting Anthony’s family at what is a very distressing time for them, and all who know him.

Police search advisors are combing open ground, woodland and searching nearby canals and rivers.

People police have seen in these areas have told officers they know who Anthony is, but have not seen him for a couple of weeks – this is worrying.

Police want anyone who has seen Anthony since October 31, has CCTV, dashcam or mobile phone footage of the university campus or Coventry / Warwickshire area to get in touch via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk or by calling 101.

They also want to hear from people who visit Tocil Wood and Nature Reserve, Ten Shilling Woods, Canley Ford, Gibbet Hill Wood or Whitefield Coppice.

Those visiting the sites or anyone else who sees him should call 999 as soon as possible.
