Concern grows for man, 68, missing from Canvey since mid-September

ESSEX Police has issued a public appeal for information after a man went missing from Canvey Island.

Kevin Griffiths, 68, was last seen on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 18.

A police spokesman said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. Officers have exhausted all lines of enquiry available to them, which is why we are asking for your help to find Kevin and bring him home safely.”

Mr Griffiths is 5’9”, ‘stocky’ and has ‘very long grey hair in a ponytail and a full beard’, police said.

He was last seen wearing a brown chequered cap, baggy blue shirt and cream trousers. He was carrying a walking stick.

It is thought he may have been in Clacton at some point since his disappearance.

Police urged anyone with information on his whereabouts to dial 101 and quote incident 802 of September 18.
