Concerns for missing Abbotts Street man

Missing: Anthony Danks
Missing: Anthony Danks

Walsall Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man who has been missing since Monday (27 July).

Anthony Danks left his home in Abbotts Street, Bloxwich, Walsall to go to a doctors appointment at around 1pm and has not been seen since.

The 50-year-old suffers from mental health issues and a heart condition which requires regular medication. He previously lived in Liverpool and officers believe he has travelled back to that area of the country.

He is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall, large build, bald and clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a navy blue round neck t-shirt with ‘Queen’ on the front in white, black tracksuit bottoms and light grey trainers. He is also known to smoke a vapour pipe.

Police believe Anthony boarded a train heading from Walsall to Liverpool on Monday afternoon.

They believe he has taken some of his medication with him but he doesn’t have more than a week’s worth with him and his health could deteriorate without them.

If you’ve seen Anthony or have any idea where he might be, please call the police on 101 as soon as possible.

They want to appeal directly to Anthony to get in touch with them and let them know he is safe and well.

Alternatively information can be given to the Missing People charity on 116 000.
