Police are urgently appealing for information to trace a man who has gone missing in Halifax.

John Demach, aged 48, was last seen at about 8.25pm on Monday, when he left Belgrave Social Club, in Claremount Road.

He is described as white, medium build, with short thinning brown/grey hair. He is believed to be wearing a dark blue jumper and black work trousers.

Inspector Mark Wheeler, of Halifax Neighbourhood Patrol, said: “It is very much out of character for him to go missing like this and we are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

“We urgently need to establish his whereabouts so we can check that he is okay. We would like to hear from anyone who has seen him since Monday evening or who has any information that could assist us in tracing him.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Calderdale District Special Operations Room via 101 quoting log number 1583 of October 26.
