Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 53-year-old man from Forest Gate and have made a renewed appeal for information about his whereabouts.

Rafik Ali left his home address in Wolseley Road, Forest Gate at 2pm on Friday, April 10.

He was last seen at approximately 7pm on Friday, April 24, on Parkland Walk near Finsbury Park.

He is described as an Asian man with black and grey hair wearing a navy jacket, grey jogging trousers and grey trainers and suffers from dementia.

Mr Ali’s son, Shahin Alam, appealed for help to find his father.

He said: “We are really worried about our Dad for his safety and wellbeing especially given his medical condition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.”

Officers urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116 000.
