Police are becoming increasingly concerned for a 66-year-old man who was last seen at St Mary’s House in Eastbourne.

Paul Osmond left his home address in St Leonards on Thursday April 18 – but was last week by his social worker at St Mary’s House on Sunday April 22.

He left after being told he would have to wait for 20 minutes and has not been seen since.

A police spokesperson said, “Paul has left his address with his belongings and it is possible he has either moved to the Blackpool area or is staying in Eastbourne.

“However, he is vulnerable due to his mental health and we want to know that he is safe and well.

“If anyone has any knowledge of Paul’s whereabouts, or thinks they may recognise him, we would urge them to call police on 101 (Sussex) quoting serial 0410 of 19 April.”

Paul has been described as white, of stocky build, 5’ 4” tall, with short, cropped, greying hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, although he has a change of clothes with him.
