Police are appealing for help to locate a man who has been reported missing in Bridlington.

At around 5.30pm on Tuesday 13 May, a man who gave his name as James Ogden, thought to be around 70 years old, approached a bed and breakfast on Summerfield Road, Bridlington and enquired about a room for three nights.

The man, who was alone at the time, was given a room where he headed for around 30 minutes before leaving in the direction of the beach at around 6pm.

After not seeing the man at breakfast for the next two days, concern was raised by the staff at the guest house. A check of his room revealed that his bed had not been slept in and, some property belonging to the man remained in the room.

Mr Ogden, as he was known to the staff, is described as an elderly white man, of a slim build and around 5ft 8ins tall. He was last seen wearing a beige jacket, light trousers, a light coloured baseball cap and spectacles. He spoke with a local accent and was very polite, and his demeanour gave no cause for concern.

Police would like help to try and identify this man, as none of the property left in his room has given any clues as to his identity. Also police would like to try and locate him to establish that he is safe and well.

Anyone who can assist police is asked to call Humberside Police tel 101 quoting log 136 of 15 May 2015.
