Chelmsford: Police Reappeal To Find Missing Man
A year since a Chelmsford man went missing Essex Police is launching another effort to try to find him.
Michael Forrest - who has onset dementia - was last seen near his home on December 7th 2010.
That day he was seen using the ATM at Tesco at Lakeside Shopping Centre at around 2pm walking towards the lake adjoining the shopping centre. Later a CCTV camera caught him at the rear of the multi storey car parking area in the north eastern corner of the complex at around 2.35pm.
It is possible that a member of the public saw him on the A126 which runs up and down the eastern side of Lakeside a few minutes later.
This month Essex Police will review the investigation with the assistance of the National Police Improvement Agency and Michael's family.
Superintendent Joe Wrigley, who led the original hunt for Michael, said: "The case will never be closed until Michael is located.
"I would like to remind the residents and workers of and visitors to Lakeside, to Essex and the South East that Michael is still missing.
"If anyone has any information that can assist us in locating him then please can they contact us by dialling 101 and telling our call handling staff they are phoning about Michael."
