AN appeal has been launched in a bid to try and find an elderly man who hasn’t been seen since he went for a walk.

James Waite, who is in his 80s, left his home and went for a walk in the Talbot Street area of Colne at around 3pm on Wednesday.

He has not been home since.

A police appeal reads: “We are a little concerned for James's welfare.

“James is described as white male 5ft 7in, large build with a bald head with grey hair at the sides.”

Call 101.
