A 24-YEAR-OLD Padiham man has been reported missing from home by his family.

Anthony Chippendale, of Oat Street, was last seen at his home address shortly before 5pm yesterday.

Family members are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and police have launched an appeal to find him.

He is described as slim, pale, with a shaven head. He has a black earring in his left ear. He also has tattoos on his arms.

He was last seen wearing a black jacket and blue hooded top, grey jogging bottoms and grey boots.

Det. Insp. Marie Haworth said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Anthony’s welfare and I would appeal for anyone who sees him or knows where he might be to get in touch with us.”

Police are advising that Anthony is not approached directly but that anyone with information should call police on 101.
