Police have this afternoon, Wednesday January 15, appealed for help to trace a Downham man who has not been seen for almost three weeks.

Barry Birch, 44, of James Scott Close, has not been seen or heard from since Friday, December 27, and officers say they are particularly concerned for his welfare as he has ongoing health problems and has missed a number of medical appointments.

Mr Birch is described as white, of slim build and 5ft 8ins tall. He has hazel eyes, is usually clean shaven and has short, light brown hair.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts or who may have seen a man matching the above description should contact police via the non-emergency 101 number.
