POLICE are trying to trace a Darlington man who has gone missing from home.

The last confirmed sighting of 49-year-old Brandon James, was yesterday morning at 10am in Salters Lane, Darlington.

He is described as 6ft, of heavy build, with short, grey hair and is clean shaven.

When last seen he was wearing a navy hooded, waterproof jacket and dark trousers. He carries a black canvass 'bag for Life'.

PC Jane Muir said Mr James’ family are concerned for his well-being as he requires medication he does not have with him.

She added: “I would urge Mr James to contact us so that we know he is safe and well. He likes to travel around the North-East on public transport, especially buses, and I would urge anyone who thinks they have seen him to contact us.”

Anyone with information regarding Mr James’ whereabouts is asked to call police on the non-emergency number 101.
