This is Richard Cooke. He is missing from home and police are concerned for his safety.

Mr Cooke, also known as Richard Marshall, 64, left his home in York on Sunday (April 23) at 12.50pm to go shopping in York city centre, but has not been seen or heard from since.

So police are asking York residents to check any sheds or outbuildings, in case Mr Cooke has sought shelter.
