Police officers are appealing to trace a missing 74-year-old man from Hackney who suffers from dementia.

Winston Haynes, also known as “Lenkie”, left his home in Finsbury Park on Tuesday morning and has not been seen since.

Winston, who suffers from dementia, is known to visit Finsbury Park and Holloway.

He is a black man, around 5ft 8in tall and of slim build.

At the time of disappearance, he was wearing a pink and brown hoodie, blue chinos and denim plimsolls.

Officers are growing increasingly concerned for Winston’s wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police on 101 quoting CAD 5154/20FEB18, or Missing People on 116000.
