Police have issued an update on missing Long Bennington man Derek Foster.

They say that following treatment for a broken shoulder, they now understand he is known as Derek Foster and that he was not using a stick when he left hospital.

Police are appealing for information about the 83-year-old man who went missing yesterday after leaving Grantham hospital.

Mr Foster left the hospital following treatment for a fractured shoulder and was supposed to return home to Lilley Street, Long Bennington, but he never arrived.

When he left hospital he was wearing a dark brown overcoat, dark trousers and shoes. He is described as white, with grey receeding hair, glasses, slim build. He has a fractured left shoulder which means his left arm is incapacited and he cannot move it. He is described as being ‘unstable’ on his feet.

He has a distinctive gait due to his arm and his walk is described as a ‘shuffle’.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen Mr Foster in the Grantham area to contact them on 101 and quote incident number 392 of December 23.
