Missing man concerns

Police are renewing their appeal for information in their search for a missing 82-year-old Carlton man.

Donald Samuels was last seen by a neighbour at around 1pm on Saturday 8 January walking along Acacia Crescent.

Police have conducted extensive searches in Carlton as well as other local areas where possible sightings of Mr Samuels, who is white, slim and around 5ft 7ins tall, have been reported.

Officers have also been liaising with members of Mr Samuels’ family and his neighbours to ascertain where he may have gone.

Posters printed with Mr Samuels’ image will now be distributed by police officers to raise the profile of the search further

Anyone who may believes they may have seen Mr Samuels is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 0300 300 99 99 ext 811 6661.

Sgt James Rimmington, beat manager for Carlton, said: “It’s now almost a week since Mr Samuels was last seen and each day that goes past without him being found adds to the concern for his well-being.

“Although we have had potential sightings of Mr Samuels reported to us, our searches in those areas have proved negative.

“His relatives are clearly very upset and worried for him, and we are working closely with them to try and identify those locations where is most likely to have gone.

“Hopefully, the release of the poster will help members of the public to recognise Mr Samuels and to realise that they may have passed him in the street or seen him in a shop, for instance. If they have any information that they believe may help then they should ring us immediately so that we can follow those details up.”
