Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 77-year-old man who has gone missing from his home in Chichester Road, Seaford.
Richard John Wise was last seen at home at 3.00pm yesterday (Sunday, 29 December) and is thought to have disappeared between then and about 8.00pm, when his wife found he had left the house.

He has not been eating or drinking and has been prescribed anti-depressants and pain-killers which he needs to take regularly.
Anyone who sees a man answering Mr Wise's description or who has other information is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101 or e-mail: 101@Sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 1150 of 29/12.
