Police are appealing for information regarding the whereabouts of a man who has gone missing from Downton.

Clive Shipton, 75, was last seen at approximately 11.30am this morning (July 8).

Mr Shipton is described as approximately 5 ft 8 inches tall, of slight build. He was wearing a blue polo shirt and a grey zip up fleece, jeans and Timberland boots.

Mr Shipton suffers with dementia and his family are growing increasingly concerned about his welfare.

It is possible that he may have boarded a bus and could be in the Bournemouth area. Our enquiries are continuing.

We’d urge anyone who may have information regarding Mr Shipton’s whereabouts to call police immediately on 999.
