Missing Latvian man may be in Lincoln

Police are asking for Lincoln residents’ help in tracing missing Latvian man Arturs Anisimovs, who could be in the city.

The 24-year-old moved from Latvia to Mansfield last year, but he has been missing since July this year.

Nottinghamshire Police are appealing for help in the Lincoln area to try to locate him.

An appeal in Latvian is available on the Lincolnshire Police website.

He was last seen wearing a red baseball cap with an ‘A’ on the front, a yellow shirt with blue detailing, blue corduroy trousers, a beige coat and canvas shoes.

He was consistently in touch with his family since he moved to the UK, but police are concerned that he has not been in touch since August 11.

His phone and bank account has also not been used since mid-August.

Arturs Anisimovs speaks fluent English amongst other languages.

Police believe he could be in the Lincoln area because he had shown interest in visiting places such as Lincoln, Grimsby, Edinburgh, Middlesbrough and Leicester.

Detective Inspector Caroline Racher said: “Arturs moved out here on his own and so he and his family have relied on the Internet for keeping in touch.

“When contact came to an abrupt halt and he didn’t speak to them on his birthday, they reported their concerns to us. We share their concerns.

“Arturs, if you are reading this, please get in touch with your family or police to let us know you are okay.

“Otherwise, if you have seen Arturs, or know where he is, call us.”
