A 97-year-old Stevenage man described by police as vulnerable has gone missing on his mobility scooter, and police have appealed for help finding him.

Donovan Southee went missing from his home in the Symonds Green area at about 9.30am this morning.

Police said he is believed to have been heading into the town centre on his mobility scooter – a red Mayfair scooter with a canopy.

He is a bald white man who is thought to be wearing a green anorak and brown corduroy trousers. He is not wearing shoes and has a collapsible zimmerframe on his scooter.

If you think you have seen Donovan or have information about where he might be, call police right away on 101 and quote reference 289 of August 28. If you think you may be with him or have just seen him, call 999.
