AN URGENT appeal has been launched to find a missing man last seen in a north Hampshire village.

Paul Morris, 46, went missing from a hospital in Glasgow on January 1, but was seen yesterday morning in the Bramley area of Basingstoke.

A police spokesman said: "While Paul may have been sighted in Bramley, we know he likes to visit places he has never been before so we ask that this appeal is shared across Hampshire.

"We are concerned about his health as he has been out of hospital for nearly four days, so are asking for the public’s help in locating him as quickly as possible."

Paul is described as white, around 5ft 9ins tall, of medium build, with green eyes, and receding, grey hair.

Anyone who has seen Paul, or has any information about his whereabouts, should call police immediately on 101, quoting 44190004479 or dial 999 in the event of an emergency.
