POLICE have renewed appeals for a missing man who 'cannot fend for himself' who lives in Ruislip.
Douglas Finnie, 72, has not been seen since 3pm on Monday (2/11), and concern is growing for his welfare.
He is described as a white man, 5ft 5ins tall of medium build. Due to a medical condition Douglas tilts to the side and he walks with a pronounced shuffling limp.
He was wearing blue tracksuit bottoms, a brown or beige fleece and possible a brown or orange striped shirt.
There is a possibility that Douglas got on a bus in the area.
He has learning difficulties and there are concerns for his well-being.
Acting Sergeant Kier Newman said: "Police are very concerned for the whereabouts of Douglas Finnie. He is 72 years old, and has special needs, making him particularly vulnerable. He has now been missing for over 48 hours.
"He is not used to being on his own as he is looked after by his carer. He was last seen in Ruislip, leaving the Tudor Club at 3pm on Monday 2 November. Due to the length of time which has lapsed he could be anywhere within London or the surrounding counties."
Anne Beckett, his carer, said: ""I am very concerned for the welfare of Douglas, I have cared for him for 25 years and he is part of the family. This is very out of character and not usual behaviour for Douglas. I have cared and risk assessed his needs with the help of his social worker from Brent.
"Douglas does not go out on his own and cannot fend of himself. Douglas goes to the Tudor Club where he is transported by Dial-a-Ride from his front door and back again. All I want is for Douglas to be found and returned back to his home address."
I would urge anyone with any information to contact Hillingdon Police CID office on 0208 246 1447 so that we can re-unite Douglas with his carer."
