POLICE and family are becoming increasingly concerned for the whereabouts of a walker who went missing on Peak District moorland.
Peter Henshaw was last seen on Wednesday morning on Derby- shire moorland above Longdendale, about two miles from Glossop.
Mr Henshaw, who is 43 and lives in Lundwood, Barnsley, suffers from Huntingdon's disease.
He has difficulty communicating and walks with an unusual gait because of his medical condition, which often gives him the appearance of someone who is drunk.
His disappearance follows that of Holmbridge man Andrew Lawrence, 58, on moors above the Holme Valley at the end of November.
Mr Lawrence has not been seen since 2.30pm on Monday November 29 when he was walking in Crossley's Plantation, about a mile from his Brownhill Lane, Holmbridge, home.
The two disappearances are not being linked.
Mr Henshaw was dropped off on Wednesday in the Reaps area, near to Torside Reservoir in Longdendale, at around 9.15am to begin his walk.
He was last seen by two fell runners heading up the hill, following the Pennine Way towards Clough Edge.
His intention was to follow the path to Edale and catch the train back to Barnsley via Sheffield.
Officers from South Yorkshire Police were alerted by Mr Henshaw's wife when he failed to return. They are working with colleagues from Derbyshire and six mountain rescue teams and three search dogs.
The Forestry Commission and the National Park ranger service has also been helping with the search.
Mr Henshaw had no map, compass, food or water with him.
He is described as 6ft and clean shaven with mousy brown hair and a Barnsley accent. Ring police on 0114 220 20 20 with any details.
