Police seek help to find missing Edlington man

POLICE are asking for the public’s help to trace a man who has been missing from home for more than three weeks.

Robert Trueman (46) left the Edlington area at around 7.30am on Friday, July 28, telling his partner he was leaving for work.

He was reported missing a few days later on Thursday, July 31.

PC Chris Hovelle said: “We believe Robert may have travelled to Blackpool for work and although it’s not usual for him to work away for weeks at a time, it is unusual for him not to contact his family and friends during that time.

“We are unsure as to what Robert was wearing when he left, however he usually wears long jumpers. He is described as medium height and build, unshaven, with dark grey hair. He also has a red devil tattoo on his arm.

“Due to the length of time no-one has seen or heard from Robert, we are becoming extremely concerned for his welfare and I’d like to ask anyone who has seen or spoken to him since he left for work that morning to please contact us.”

PC Hovelle said that Mr Trueman’s family is worried about him and keen to know that he is safe.

If anyone has any information about Mr Trueman, call 101 quoting incident number 978 of July 31.
