THE anguish goes on for the families of three Huddersfield men.
All are still anxiously awaiting any news about the three, who all vanished before Christmas.
And despite a huge inquiry by the Missing Persons Unit at West Yorkshire Police, there have been few leads about any of them.
The three men are Alan Holt, Neil Bryson and Bernard Hallas.
Mr Holt, 40, who was last seen at his home in Dalton on September 17, is thought to have been sleeping rough in the area but there are grave concerns about his welfare in the bitter cold.
He was seen on October 8 at St Mary’s Church in Mirfield but there have been no other sightings of him since that date.
Mr Holt is white, 5ft 8 ins tall and of skinny/medium build, with balding greyish hair. He may now have a beard.
Married father-of-two Mr Bryson, 50, left his Wadman Road home in Scholes, Holmfirth, at 6.30am on Tuesday, November 27. He was last seen wearing a dark suit with a shirt and tie and a dark brown Barbour-style coat.
His car was later discovered in a car park near Yateholme Reservoir, above the village of Holme. This prompted a night-time search by Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
A few days later, expert divers searched sections of the reservoir at the lonely beauty spot.
Mr Bryson, a healthcare professional, is described as white, around 6ft tall, of slim build, bald on top and with hair around the side.
Mr Hallas, 84, was seen on December 18 on a bus in Huddersfield bus station wearing blue checked pyjamas and a sheepskin coat and a brown hat.
He had travelled to Marsden and back on the bus to the station.
He was last seen on CCTV at around 11pm that night in Wakefield Road, Aspley, having walked down High Street and Ramsden Street.
The following day police mounted a full-scale search of woods and fields around Bradley. They have also searched land at Newsome but have found no trace of the pensioner.
Mr Hallas, who suffers from a severe medical condition, is described as white, around 5ft 5ins tall and frail and with wispy grey hair.
A police spokesman said yesterday: “All three inquiries are very active but there have been no new leads on any of the missing men.
“We would appeal to anyone who has any information to contact police on 101.”
