Further appeals for missing elderly man from Brent

PICTURED: Leocardo Loney

POLICE IN Brent are continuing to appeal for information to find 83-year-old Leocardo Loney who has been missing for two months.

Loney - who has dementia - was last seen at his care home in Wembley on Thursday, August 3 at about 5.35pm.

Previously issued CCTV footage shows Loney leaving the care home and since then there have been three possible sightings of him. The first was on a Route 182 bus travelling from the Wembley area towards Brent Cross, on Tuesday August 22.

The second and third unconfirmed sightings were both in Hatfield on Saturday September 9 and later on Thursday September 28.

Both Loney's family and police are extremely worried about him.

His daughter, Marie Loney, said:

"I am extremely concerned for my father's safety. He is a frail, elderly man who suffers from dementia. He is in need of 24-hour care and requires medication."

Loney is described as a black man, about 5ft 10ins and of medium build with short grey hair.

At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing a red baseball cap and a black jacket.

Leocardo likes to take the bus and train and also enjoys going to the park and betting shops in the area.

He needs medication for his dementia and may be confused.

Detective Sergeant Kenny Hall from Brent CID, said:

"Leocardo has now been missing for two months and despite extensive enquiries we have not been able to trace him. His family is desperate for information. Leocardo is an elderly and vulnerable man who needs regular medication. We would appeal for anyone who may be able to assist, not to hesitate, but call police immediately."

Anyone with information on his whereabouts to call Brent's Missing Persons Unit on 101 or Missing People on 116000.
