Police are appealing for help from the public to trace a missing man from Houghton-le-Spring.
Wesley Bond has been missing since 12pm on Tuesday, July 17 and was last seen in the Hetton Road area of Houghton-le-Spring.
It is thought that the 54-year old may have travelled into Sunderland city centre on the same day.
Wesley does not have his medication with him, so officers are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and are now appealing for help from the public.
He is described as white, 5 ft 8in, unshaven with short, grey hair. He was last seen wearing a grey suite, black T-shirt with a white logo and dark shoes.
Anyone who knows his whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference 883 170718.
