    Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 70-year-old man.
    Norman Johnson, who lives in Tonge Moor, Bolton, was last seen at around 7.30pm on Tuesday 29 March 2011 as he attended a function at the Monaco Ballroom in Hindley.

    He may be suffering the early stages of dementia and that night was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra, registration number FE53 WZU. Police are still looking for this vehicle.

    Norman is white, 5ft 7in to 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, with grey short hair, a thick grey moustache and wears gold rim glasses.

    He was last seen wearing a black suit with a black jumper that had a grey band around the middle. He was also wearing black boots.

    Detective Sergeant Lee Shaw from Bolton CID said: "It has now been almost 48 hours since Norman's disappearance and his family are obviously very concerned about his welfare.

    "It is extremely out of character for him to disappear and he also does not have his medication with him.

    "We would urge anyone who knows of the whereabouts of Norman or who may have seen his car to get in touch with us.

    Anybody with information is asked to contact the CID office at Bolton on 0161 856 2161.


    Have a better pic as well but my photo bucket isn't working so will have to add later

    Oh god, their worst nightmare come true. I do hope they find him soon and that he's safe and well.

    Went through this with my grandma a couple of years ago, she has Alzheimers. The number of times we had to drive 25 miles at stupid o'clock in the morning because she'd gone walkabout in her nightie was unreal. Thankfully we got her into a care home near me soon after that, so our nightmare was over.

    I pray this gentleman is found, can imagine what his family are going through.

    Much love and strength to them. x
     
  14. I have cross posted on FB will cross post on some of the dog forums I go on.

    Hope he's found safe.
