There are concerns today for a missing Wheathampstead man who has got dementia.

James Lomax, aged 83 and who suffers with dementia and is very vulnerable, was last seen leaving his home in Manor Road, Wheathampstead at around 4.50pm yesterday (Thursday, May 22).

He is believed to be wearing a light brown coloured anorak, dark blue trousers, opened-toe sandals and brown socks. He may also be wearing a dark coloured flat cap.

He is likely to be confused and disorientated and we would ask residents in Wheathampstead and surrounding villages to keep a look out for Mr Lomax and also to check gardens and out buildings.

Anyone who sees James, or knows of his whereabouts is asked to contact police via the non-emergency number 101.
