ALL we want for Christmas is our grandad back.
That was the plea last night from the ten grandchildren of Bernard Hallas, who are hoping their missing grandad is found for Christmas.
Mr Hallas, 84, of Bradley, has not been seen since Tuesday when he vanished wearing his blue check pyjamas, a hat, shoes and coat.
The last sighting of him was when he was spotted in Aspley late at night.
Police have also issued CCTV images and footage in the hope it may prompt people who have seen him and know of his whereabouts. The footage can be seen at www.examiner.co.uk
His daughter, Andrea Gill, has made an emotional plea for his safe return, saying: “We just want you to come home, dad, so we know you are safe.
“Everyone is very worried about you and we are looking everywhere for you.”
Mr Hallas has ten grandchildren and they are currently out looking for him.
“They just all want grandad home so they can enjoy Christmas with him. We won’t be able to enjoy Christmas if he isn’t with us,” Andrea added.
“The weather is horrible at the moment and it’s no place for you to be.”
Andrea also urged anyone who sees Mr Hallas to ring police immediately, while Huddersfield CID say anyone who spots Mr Hallas should call 999 as an emergency and stay with him until police arrive.
Andrea urged people to be on the lookout for her dad, adding: “If you see my dad please don’t ignore him but ask him in for a cup of tea.
“He is a lovely, gentle old man. Then call the police who will do the rest.
“I can’t describe just how worried we are about him – if it was your dad out there in the cold and wet then you would be very worried too.”
Mr Hallas was seen on a bus from Bradley into Huddersfield at 8.20pm on Tuesday December 18.
The bus went into Huddersfield town centre where he then caught another bus to Marsden.
At the end of its route, at around 10.15pm, the bus went back into Huddersfield with Mr Hallas still on board.
He was last sighted on CCTV at around 11pm at Wakefield Road, Aspley.
Mr Hallas suffers from several medical conditions and has no medication with him.
Police say he is described as a white man, around 5ft 5ins tall, clean shaven, frail and with wispy grey hair.
Huddersfield police have been carrying out extensive enquiries since he was reported missing.
Det Insp Philip Benson, of Huddersfield CID, said: “As times goes on we are growing ever more concerned about Mr Hallas and I am continuing my appeal to members of the public to assist us in finding him.
“We have released CCTV images of Mr Hallas leaving Huddersfield Bus Station and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him.
“I would urge anyone who does see him to take him into the warmth and contact the police on 999 immediately. It is important we locate him as soon as possible”.
