56-year-old William Notley, also known as Bill or Billy, from Copmanthorpe, was last seen by his wife just after 8am on Saturday (20 April 2013) as he left for work in Tockwith driving a blue ‘02’ registered Vauxhall Vectra.
The alarm was raised after his employer called his family to say he had not turned up for work.
Police are growing increasingly concerned for Mr Notley’s welfare and are appealing to members of the public to contact them if they believe they have seen him or know where he is now.
He is described as white, of slim build and 5ft, 6in in height. He has a naturally tanned complexion, brown eyes and light brown hair which is thinning and balding. He was wearing a burgundy zip-up fleece with “Just Travel” written on the chest with a white button-up short sleeved shirt underneath, grey trousers and brown, lace-up ‘Skechers’ trainers.
Sergeant John Asvadi of York police, said:
I am appealing to anyone who has seen a man matching Mr Notley’s description or his blue car, to contact us as a matter of urgency. Both his family and the police are very concerned for his welfare and want to know that he is safe.
If Mr Notley sees or hears our appeal, I would like to make a direct appeal to him. Bill, your family are very, very concerned for you and I urge you to please contact your family, friends or the police and let us know that you are safe.
Anyone who believes they have seen Mr Notley or knows where he is now, should call North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the force control room.
