A Thamesmead pensioner who suffers from dementia has been missing for four days, sparking a police appeal.

Arthur Jacobs, 73, was last seen on Friday morning leaving his home in Camelot Close in his blue Peugeot 206.

Mr Jacobs’ car was found in the car park of the Morrisons supermarket in Erith the following morning at 1.15am.

He is described as white, with grey hair, and about 5ft 6in. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a navy blue coat.

Extensive searches have proved unsuccessful and police are becoming increasingly concerned about his welfare.

Anyone who can help should call police on 101 and ask for the Grip and Pace Centre.
