CCTV footage has been released of a 73 year old man who’s been missing for nine days.

Alan Spray was last seen along Verulam Road in St Albans on Saturday July 30th.

The CCTV footage is taken from the Total garage on that road at around 8.10pm that evening. It’s the last confirmed sighting of him.


Alan is described as white, approximately 5ft 9ins tall, is balding on top with grey hair to the side and wears light reactive glasses. He was described as wearing a brown and blue checked short sleeve shirt and brown/grey trousers. He may be carrying a book.

Detective Inspector Simon Warwick has been telling Heart:

"It is now over a week since Alan was last seen and whilst we remain hopeful he will be found safe and well, understandably concerns for his welfare are increasing.

"We have received overwhelming support from the media and members of the public and I would like to thank everyone for their assistance. I am hoping this CCTV may jog people's memories further and would ask anyone who was in the area at the time who hasn't been in contact with police to call if they have any information."

Officers would ask anyone who has seen Alan to contact the police immediately via the non-emergency number 101.
