Police concerned for missing dementia sufferer
Police are appealing to people across London to help find a man suffering from dementia who has been missing since last night.
Simon Balunga was last last seen by relatives at around 7.30pm, walking down the steps into Brixton tube station.
The 68-year old man was due to take a Victoria line train back to Tottenham Hale station, from where he would have walked home to his home in Bream Close where he lives with his wife.
But he has not been seen or heard of since.
Police are very concerned for his welfare, particularly since he went missing on one of the coldest nights of the winter, with temperatures plummeting below zero.
