Police in Hackney are becoming increasingly concerned for man who has been missing for over six weeks.

Urban Atkins, 40, was last seen by his family on Saturday August 15 after leaving his home in Amhurst Road, Lower Clapton to go to work in Enfield.

He was reported missing to police by his family one month later, on September 18, when they became concerned for his welfare.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Urban has previously gone missing but this has been for the longest time without any contact with his family.

“Police have worked hard to locate him but they are really stuck, there is nothing they know of as to why he would go missing.”
