Mohsin Saleh, 31, has been missing from his home in Shrewsbury Road, Forest Gate, since Saturday afternoon and could be living rough in the Southwark area, police have said.

Mohsin’s sister, Zaitun Saleh, told the Recorder she was becoming “increasingly worried” about her brother who police said suffered from “mental health issues”.

Zaitun said: “He is very unwell and we need to bring him home as soon as possible. We’re very worried for his well-being, he didn’t take his phone and we don’t think he has any cash.

“I urge anyone who has seen him to please get in contact.”

She said the family had at first been concerned that he may have left the country.

“We were worried because we couldn’t find his passport. We’re hoping his passport is just lost because the police confirmed that he has not left the UK.

“This is the first time he has not returned home for this long. He has completely isolated himself from the outside world and he will definitely be alone. We are really worried for him.”

Mohsin is 5ft 6ins tall, he was wearing blue shoes, a cream jubba (islamic ankle-length garment) and a cream hooded jumper when he went missing.

It is thought he could be attending mosques to pray.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting ref 15MIS019214 or phone or text the charity Missing People on 116000.
