Officers are still appealing for help in tracing an elderly missing man from Stratford who has been missing for more than a week.

Mr Henry is described as a black man of slim to medium build and uses a walking stick. He also has a scar on his left eyebrow.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a white flat cap and a black, white and brown jacket with brown trousers and he may give a surname of Bowry.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers are exceedingly concerned for his safety and welfare as Mr Henry has never been missing for this amount of time.”
