Police are urgently trying to trace a missing 62-year-old man from Kessingland near Lowestoft and are appealing for the public’s help in doing so.

Alan Wright was last seen leaving the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston on foot at around 3.45pm today.

It is not known where he was heading or which direction he took when leaving the hospital.

Detectives extremely concerned for his welfare and are asking anyone with information to get in touch urgently.

Alan, who lives in Kessingland, is white, 5ft 8in tall and of medium build.

He is described as having unruly hair, a scruffy beard and wears glasses.

The 62-year-old was last seen wearing a dark hat, which detectives believe could possibly be a baseball cap.

He usually wears casual dark trousers and a top with brown shoes, and officers have said he has an “unkempt” appearance.

Police have advised the photograph above is 12 years old and Alan is currently thinner than the image depicts.

• Anyone who has seen Alan or has information about where he might be should call Suffolk Constabulary on 101 quoting CAD reference number 320 of today, Sunday October 1.
