Police concern for missing diabetic pensioner
Police are appealing for assistance in tracing a vulnerable man with chronic diabetes who has gone missing from the Clapham Junction area.
John Robinson - have you seen him?
John Robinson, 65, was last seen at around midday on Tuesday, July 30, at his home address in Hillyard Street, Stockwell.
Officers are concerned as he has only recently been released from hospital and requires daily insulin injections to treat his diabetes - he has previously fallen ill after going missing.
John is described as a white man, 5ft 6ins, of medium build and was last seen wearing a brown trench coat and tweed flat cap.
Information suggests he regularly travels on his freedom pass on London buses in central London, Brixton and Clapham Junction.
Detective Constable Chris Stewart, from Lambeth police, said: "We are extremely concerned for the welfare of Mr Robinson, as without regular insulin injections he could slip into a diabetic coma."
If you have seen him or have any information about his whereabouts please call Lambeth CID on 020 8649 2192 or the police on 101, quoting reference 13MIS025523.
