Police have joined the search to find an elderly man with dementia who disappeared from his Finsbury Park home – possibly in pyjamas and slippers – last weekend.

Neville Marshall, 75, was last seen in the Six Acres Estate in Durham Road on Sunday.

Scotland Yard described Mr Marshall as a black man of slim build with grey Afro hair. He may be wearing a green T-shirt, navy striped pyjamas and slippers and is not believed to have a coat or warm clothing with him.

Mr Marshall, who also has diabetes, requires regular medication, which he does not have with him.

Anyone who has seen Mr Marshall or knows his whereabouts is urged to contact Det Const Michael Rack on 020 7421 0111 or 07766 781 861. Alternatively, you can call the charity Missing People on 116000.
