A new description of the clothing worn by a man missing for a week has been released by police searching for him.


Graham Bonney, 59, was last seen by his family leaving his home in Little Blakenham on foot at around 10.30pm on June 18. He was reported missing the next day.

He is described as white, of slim build, 5ft 5ins tall, with white, collar-length hair.

The clothing Mr Bonney was believed to have been wearing when he went missing is now described as a tan brown waist-length cotton jacket and a mauve shirt. The black rucksack has the wording Jansport on the front, with one of the straps held in place with a safety pin.

Officers have been unable to locate Mr Bonney and are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Inspector Paul Crick said: “We are very grateful for the help we have received from members of the public who have reported seeing a man matching Mr Bonney’s description, however he still hasn’t been located.

“We are becoming increasingly concerned for Mr Bonney’s welfare as his disappearance is considered out of character and he hasn’t taken important medication with him.

“He has now been missing almost seven days and as he didn’t appear to take any money with him or a mobile phone and was travelling on foot there are concerns that he may have got into difficulties and isn’t able get assistance.”

Anyone with information about Mr Bonney’s whereabouts should contact Suffolk Police on 101.
