POLICE have made another call to the public to help them find an elderly man who disappeared in Bournemouth more than two years ago.

Michael Asher, who was 82 when he disappeared, travelled to Dorset from his home in Maidenhead in March 2017. He has not been seen since.

Detective Constable Amanda Winterbourne of Thames Valley Police said: “Our investigation to find Michael is still ongoing and today I am re-appealing to the public for their help in finding Michael.

“Our enquiries have established that Michael exited the number 5 bus at the bus stop on Grenfell Place in Maidenhead on 31 March 2017.

“Michael then went to Maidenhead railway station and took a train to Poole.

“Later on the same day, Michael then travelled by bus from Swanage to Bournemouth.

“Michael is 84-years-old, white, 6ft, slim, with grey receding hair. When he was last see he was wearing a beige jacket, brown trousers, brown shoes and a cream baseball cap."

Mr Asher has been known to frequent churches and synagogues. The last unconfirmed sighting of him was at a soup kitchen in Bournemouth.

In 2017, Mr Asher's cousin Pat Goodsave said: "Michael's disappearance is very out of character. He enjoys his home comforts and in particular maintaining his garden."

He appealed directly to Mr Asher to get in touch and said: "I'm just so worried about you and want to know where you are."

Anyone who may have seen Mr Asher, or those who may know of his whereabouts, should contact police by calling 101 quoting reference 43170096477.
