Cheshire Police are appealing for information from the public to help trace a man reporting missing from his home in Runcorn in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 1 October.

57 year old Michael Johnson was last seen by his family at his home in Runcorn yesterday, Tuesday 30th September. He is described as white, 5′10" tall, of stocky build with balding grey hair and wears a beard. He has blue eyes and occasionally wears glasses. 

Michael is known to walk around the rural parts of Runcorn and Frodsham, and Delamere Forest. 

Both Michael′s family and Cheshire Police are extremely concerned about Michael′s wellbeing due to a recent history of health and welfare problems.

Anyone who knows Michael, or who may recognize him and seen him within the last day, are urged to contact Cheshire Police as a priority on 101 quoting incident 50 of 1/10/14.

Chief Inspector Kevin Bennett who is leading the investigation into Michael′s disappearance said "We are very concerned about Michael and would urge anyone who knows him, or indeed anyone who may have seen anyone fitting his description, to contact us urgently.
