Fam­ily fears grow for miss­ing man, 66

Southport Visiter - - Front Page -

THE fam­ily of a man miss­ing since Christ­mas Eve say they are des­per­ate to find out he is safe.

Martin Neary, who rents a flat in South­port, was last seen at the home of his brother Michael, who lives in Orm­skirk, more than a week ago.

The 66-year-old suf­fers with poor men­tal health and needs in­jec­tions ev­ery month, along with med­i­ca­tion which his daugh­ter, Deb­bie, be­lieves he may have stopped tak­ing.

His rel­a­tives told him to re­turn to his own flat in Black­pool two days after ap­pear­ing at his brother’s home on De­cem­ber 22, but since leav­ing Orm­skirk he has not been seen.

One pos­si­ble sight­ing has been made at traf­fic lights in Tar­leton, near the Vil­lage Inn pub, on Christ­mas or Box­ing Day.

His mo­bile phone re­mains switched off, and it is un­clear if he has bank cards and ac­cess to money.

Po­lice have been in­formed.

Rel­a­tives say he has gone miss­ing once be­fore, but they have no clue where he could be on this oc­ca­sion.

Deb­bie said: “He might be wan­der­ing the streets.

“We haven’t got any an­swers, we just want him to get back in touch and let us all know he is safe.

“We think he has got money, but he didn’t tell us how much.

“My sis­ter has been back to his flat in South­port which he had told us he’d lost, but we’ve spo­ken to his land­lord, who says that is not the case.

“We are wor­ried, my mum is wor­ried. He could be in Orm­skirk, Black­pool, Pre­ston, Tar­leton, Hes­keth Bank, where I live, or some­where else.”

Martin is white, 6ft, and was last seen wear­ing a black bomber jacket with a brown jacket over the top, as well as a blue checked jumper and blue trousers.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call po­lice on 101.
