Police are appealing for help to find a pensioner suffering from advanced dementia who went missing a week ago.
Abdoulahi Ndoye, 74, was last seen in Leabridge Road at the junction with Albany Road last Wednesday.
DS Paul Ridley, from Hackney CID, is very concerned for Mr Abdoulahi’s welfare because of his deteriorating health.
He said: “He has only been living in Hackney for about a week and may have attempted to return to Newham which he knows well.
“He frequents the public transport network, particularly buses and I would request that the public’s focus is directed towards these areas.”
Mr Ndoye is black, 6ft tall, of slim build with black unkempt hair, and when last seen he was wearing a black jacket with a big collar, black jeans and black boots.
He is not believed to have any money on him or his Freedom bus pass.
