Missing: Arthur Jones

Sergeant Mehdi Fallahi, of Sussex Police, said: “We have deployed extra patrols to search for Mr Jones in Hove and the surrounding areas.

“We are very concerned that there have been no sightings of him since yesterday afternoon.”

Arthur is described as 5ft 10in tall, of thick-set build and with short grey spiky hair.

He was wearing a three-quarter length blue raincoat, black cords, grey jumper with a striped shirt underneath and black and white trainers.

He is physically able but because he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease he is vulnerable.
