POLICE are appealing for help in tracing a man reported missing from his home in Crewe and who is believed to have visited the Chester area.
Christopher Helme, 47, was reported missing by family members from their home in Betjemen Way, on Tuesday. He left the house on foot and has no access to a car, although he can drive.
He is about 5ft 8in, of medium to large build, with short cropped hair which is greying round the sides.
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a three-quarter length jacket and grey/blue Marks and Spencer fleece. He was also wearing a scarf and brown leather shoes.
Police believe he has visited the Chester area and has links to the Cumbrian area also.
Inspector Steve Griffiths, who is overseeing the investigation into Christopher’s whereabouts, said: “His family haven’t seen him since 11am on Tuesday and are very worried about him.
“We are very concerned for Christopher’s welfare and urge anyone who may have seen him today or knows of his recent or current whereabouts to contact us.
“I would also appeal to Christopher directly to make contact with his family or Cheshire Constabulary on 101, quoting incident 814 of February 14, 2012.”
