More than 30 volunteers joined specialist search officers from Essex Police in the hunt for missing 82-year-old Gordon Wilson in Halstead today (November 5).

A man fitting Mr Wilson’s description got off the number 352 bus in Halstead on Sunday, October 25 and walked in the direction of Butler Road.

The volunteers met at midday in the Butler Road car park and were briefed by acting chief superintendent Ewen Wilson before making their way to farmland and a wooden area off Ravens Avenue.

Mr Wilson, from Leaden Roding, suffers from vascular dementia and has been missing now for 11 days.

Mr Wilson is described as 5ft 11 in tall and of medium build with grey thinning hair. He wears glasses and was last seen wearing a sports jacket which is either checked or navy. He usually wears a short, tie and jumper.
