Please could you be on the lookout for a vulnerable missing person, a 73 year old white male, suffers from dementia, also unable to talk due to a medical condition.

A widely circulated text message, warning of a terrorist attack on London’s Tube network on Monday morning, has been branded a hoax by police.
The text led to widespread speculation on social media sites, with tweets warning people to avoid public transport as a major terrorist event was planned.
Typically, the text started off with an explanation about a tip-off from a friend of a friend who had a mate who worked for the police or Transport for London.
It said nothing specific, but that people ‘think’ a terror attack was going to happen, targeting the Tube.
As the text was circulated, it developed extra tidbits of information until it claimed ‘every’ policeman was being called in – even those on holiday – for a special 4am shift in the capital.
It prompted the commander of British Transport Police in London to post his own tweet, saying the situation was under control and the threat text had been established as a hoax.
