Police say pensioner missing for six weeks may be in Leicestershire

The hunt for a missing pensioner who hasn't been seen in six weeks has turned to Leicestershire[1]. John Binsley was reported missing back on June 23 and last made contact the following day but hasn't been seen since. The disappearance of the 71-year-old, who is from Yoxall in Staffordshire, prompted a major search by officers, but they have so far been unable to trace him.

It's thought the pensioner could now be in the Leicestershire area, with people urged to look out for him. In a statement, Leicestershire Police[2] said: "Can you help our Staffordshire Police colleagues locate missing 71 year-old John Binsley? John may be in the Leicestershire and Rutland area."

Mr Binsley has also previously walked extensively in Scotland, but officers believe he may be in Leicestershire. Anyone who knows of John's whereabouts should call police on 101, quoting incident 406 of 23 June. Alternatively, report information online[4].
