Morris appeal for help to find him
The daughter of an 88 year old man missing from Stanstead Abbotts
has given an emotional appeal asking members of the public to
assist in the searches to find him.
Gwyn, who also goes by the name John, was last seen on the
morning of December 6th in Stanstead Abbotts. He suffers with
Ann Hawker said: “My father is so kind and loving and we
just want him back. He has two granddaughters who idolise him and
we are all desperate for news that he is ok. We cannot thank the
police enough for their efforts and people in East Herts who have
been offering to help.
“I would like to re-iterate the police appeal for people to
check their sheds, garages and outbuildings in case my father has
sought shelter there. It has been so cold since he disappeared and
we are so very worried about him. I would also ask anyone who is
out in the countryside to keep look out for my father.”
Gwyn is described as being around 5ft 4ins tall, is of a medium
build and has short, balding grey hair. He was wearing blue checked
pyjama bottoms, light brown/tan leather shoes, a blue dressing gown
and a green trench coat. He also wears glasses however we do not
believe that he has them with him.
Gwyn is a keen hill walker and has been known in the
past to try and make his way to Harlow train station.
Chief Inspector for East Herts, Gerry McDonald said: “Concern
for Gwyn’s welfare is increasingly growing and I ask for the
support of dog walkers, farmers and anyone out walking in East
Herts, particularly towards Harlow, to be vigilant and look for any
signs of Gwyn.
“As a Constabulary we are making use of social media to spread
the message as part of attempts to find Gwyn and would ask others
to share the information via Facebook and Twitter.”
Anyone with information on Gwyn should contact police on 101
