A MAN has vanished and a large amount of money has been withdrawn from his bank account in Huddersfield.
Patrick Shevlin, 39, comes from the Levenshulme area of Greater Manchester and is believed to have spent the summer walking from his home into the Yorkshire area.
His family has not heard from him since early summer and has grown increasingly anxious about his safety after finding a substantial amount of money gone from his bank account.
The money was withdrawn over the counter at Barclays in Market Place, Huddersfield, on June 24.
Mr Shevlin was last seen on June 20 by his lanndlord.
His brother, Peter Shevlin, said: "Patrick does a lot of walking during the summer months and normally keeps in touch by his mobile phone or e-mails us from libraries. We've not heard anything at all from him. It's not like him not to get in touch."
Mr Shevlin left a lot of personal belongings - including his mobile phone - at his flat.
He suffers from asthma and there is a history of heart problems in his family.
His parents died from heart conditions and a brothers, Paul, died from a heart attack when he was 36. Three other brothers have had serious heart problems.
Peter Shevlin, who has had a triple heart bypass, said: "We are growing more and more worried about Patrick. Perhaps he has been taken ill somewhere.
"If he likes a certain part of the country he may stay for a while. He will use shops like KwikSave, Aldi and Lidl and go to charity shops, libraries and swimming pools."
His middle name is Nigel and he uses the nickname Ni. He is slim, with dark cropped brown hair and hazel eyes.
