Police are appealing for the public’s help to locate a missing man who they believe may be in Morecambe.

Phillip Marley, 39, from Skelton near York has not been seen since 7.50pm on Thursday 22 March 2012, when he left he his home address on Brecksfield following a family disagreement.

Police officers, Police Community Support Officers and an air support unit from Cleveland Police have been carrying out searches of the area.

There is concern for Phillip’s welfare as his behaviour is out of character.

Phillip is described as white, around 6ft tall with short dark hair, which is receding. When he was last seen Phillip was wearing a black coat, blue jeans and brown shoes.

Although it is not known where he may go, Phillip is known to travel by train and enquiries suggest that he may be in the Morecambe area.

Inspector Charlotte Bloxham, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen Phillip since last night to get in touch with the police straight away as we need to confirm that he is safe and well.

“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who has used the rail network around York to get in touch if they have seen anyone matching Phillip’s description.

Insp Bloxham added: “Phillip, if you see or hear this appeal please get in touch with your family as they are worried about you. Or contact the police so that we can make sure that you are safe.”

Anyone who can help the police to locate Phillip Marley is asked to contact York police on 101. Press option 2 and ask for Mark Proctor by name or 1019 by the digits individually (one zero one nine).
