A family are appealing for help in tracing a relative with “mental health issues” who has gone missing.
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.
