POLICE are concerned for the welfare of a Leigh man who has not been seen for more than a week.

Mark Darwin, 30, has been missing from his home on Bond Street, Leigh, since Saturday August 18.

Mark was last seen at 5pm by a warden at the sheltered accommodation where he lives, and is described as white, 5ft 8in tall, of heavy build, with short dark brown hair and brown eyes. He has a Northern accent.

He was last seen wearing track suit bottoms and a blue zip-up jacket.

Mark requires medication which he has left at his flat and although he is no danger to the public, without his medication, he may become depressed.
