Police concerned about safety of missing man

Anthony has been missing for six days

Police are growing increasingly concerned about the mental state of a Lincolnshire man who has been missing for eight days.

As previously reported, Anthony Warner, 34, has not been in contact with friends or family since leaving his home in Wrangle on the evening of June 7, which is said to be ‘completely out of character’ for him.

Anthony left his home in his black Toyota Corolla, with the number plate AF 08 TVU, and police want him to get in touch to let them know he is safe.

He is described as about five foot eight, slim, with short dark hair and a trimmed beard and he was wearing a shirt and slacks when he left home.

Have you seen him?

Press Officer at Lincolnshire Police Jemma Peacock said: “The support we get from the media and the public in finding missing people is phenomenal. On social media we can get thousands of shares within a very short space of time.

“It is incredibly effective in getting the message out. It often means the difference between finding someone or not and in an extreme case, it can mean the difference between life and death.

“With Anthony, because it is so unlike him to go missing, his family are understandably distraught. We are really grateful to everyone who has shared the appeal and we would ask that they continue to do so. It might just be your mention, share or tweet that helps us find Anthony.”

Anthony’s family previously released a statement saying: “Anth, if you read this we want you to know we love and miss you very much and it is safe for you to come home.

“If you feel you are not ready and need more time can you please just let us know you are safe. Love mum, mad and family.”

Anyone who thinks they have seen Anthony since last Wednesday evening, or his car, should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 477 of June 8.
