    Cops 'extremely concerned' for a pensioner who vanished from his home are urging residents to scour their gardens for the missing man.

    Vulnerable Thomas Beattie, known as Ted, has been missing since he left his Stafford home on Wednesday (October 6).

    Officers continuing their search for the 89-year-old believe he could be taking shelter in a garden or shed and are pleading for residents to check their homes.

    Anyone who spots the pensioner - who may be walking slowly - should immediately dial 999, Staffordshire Police said.

    Inspector Laura Morrey, deputy commander at Stafford neighbourhood policing team, said: "We are extremely concerned regarding the welfare of 89-year-old Thomas Beattie.

    "Thomas, who is known as Ted, can become confused, suffers with poor eyesight and can be unsteady on his feet.

    "He went missing overnight on Wednesday October 6 into Thursday October 7."

    #MISSING: Officers are continuing to search for 89-year-old Ted Beattie, missing from Stafford.

    Ted went missing overnight on Wednesday 6 into Thursday 7 October.

    Thanks to the community’s response to previous appeals, we now know that Ted was last seen on CCTV at approximately 2.10am outside the Wimpy at Milford, heading towards Stafford.

    The last sighting of a Ted by a witness was a 3.30am-3.40am on Milford Road, between School Lane and the Wimpy at Milford. This suggests that he may have been heading back towards Walton-on-the-Hill, Hillcroft Park, Weeping Cross area.

    Ted is described as white, approximately 5ft 10 inches tall and has short grey hair. He was last seen wearing a waist-length coat and appears to be wearing full-length trousers. He may be walking slow and unsteady.

    We are appealing to the community to support officers within the local area by checking CCTV, smart doorbells, dash cams from 2am and check garden perimeters, driveways, outbuildings, land and hedgerows.

    Anyone who sees Ted, or has information on his whereabouts, to call police immediately on 999, quoting 183 of 7 October.
