Extra officers and specially-trained staff are starting visits to vulnerable people - as reports tend to increase at Christmas.
Missing Man Found Safe And Well
Police say missing Peter Burt has been found safe and well.
The 52 year old of Tedder Road went missing after leaving from his home in East Howe on Tuesday, 12 April 2011.
At the time, officers were concerned for his well-being. Sergeant Stuart Pitman, of Bournemouth police, said:
“Peter was clearly distressed yesterday and his family fear that he may come to some harm.
“He left with only a small amount of money and it is not known whether he has his medication with him.
“Such behaviour is completely out of character for Peter.”
But on Thursday April 14th, a Dorset police spokesperson said:
"He's been found safe and well in the Bournemouth area."
