Police appeal to trace missing man

POLICE in Suffolk are today appealing for help in tracing a man who went missing from his home in Derbyshire at the weekend.

Officers believe Derek Gardner, who was last seen leaving his home in Clowne on Sunday, may be in the Suffolk or Norfolk area at a caravan site.

The 68-year-old left his home in a Triumph Herald motor home at around 7.25am but his family do not know where he was heading.

A spokesman for Derbyshire police said they are becoming increasingly concerned for Mr Gardner’s safety.

He is described as white, of heavy build, with short grey hair at the sides of his head which is balding.
