The mother of a missing man from Dewsbury has urged Examiner readers to help trace her son.
Police are keen to find James Bould, 34, who went missing from work – Sports Direct in Dewsbury town centre – at 8am yesterday.
Police said Mr Bould has an existing medical condition and there are immediate concerns for his welfare.
And this lunchtime James’ mother Jane told the Examiner via Twitter: “Please keep an eye out for him. He is my son and I just want him home safe. Thanks.”
Det Insp Jim Griffiths, of Kirklees Safeguarding unit, who is heading up the missing person enquiry, said: “We have had no sightings of James since he left work at Sports Direct on Monday morning.
“We are appealing for anyone who may have seen him to come forward. His family are deeply concerned for his safe return home.”
James was last seen wearing a red t-shirt with blue stripes on the sleeve, navy blue jogging pants with royal blue stripes down the sides, a green parka coat and a burgundy red bobble hat.
Mr Bould is 5ft 8in tall and of average build. He has pale skin with a stubbly beard, blue eyes and auburn hair which is short at the back with a longer sweeping fringe.
He may be travelling by public transport as he doesn’t have a car and there is a possibility that he has gone to Bradford though his whereabouts are not known.
If anyone with information should ring Kirklees police on 101.
