Have you seen Phillip Gasper, who went missing in Stratford on Tuesday?

The 81-year-old was last seen on CCTV footage at 12.14pm, showing him walking away from his home, and has not been seen since.

There is concern for Phillip’s welfare as he suffers with diabetes, which requires regular monitoring and daily medication to prevent him from falling into a coma.

Officers are keen to locate him as a matter of urgency due to his health and the cold weather.

It is out of character for him to leave home without letting someone know.
