George Bass is aged 77 and is missing from his home in the Knox area of Harrogate.
An appeal was launched by North Yorkshire Police and ground searches were started yesterday and continue to take place today. An air search by the police helicopter happened in the early hours of this morning.
Mr Bass was last seen on Wednesday, 2 March 2016 at around 11.30am. At that time he was wearing a dark grey padded jacket and brown trousers.
Sarah Norris is the daughter of George Bass and spoke to the Harrogate Informer.
My dad went missing yesterday and the whole family is incredibly worried about him.
This is really out of character for him. We don’t believe he has any money with him, but does have a bus pass.
The family want to thank the police and members of the public for all their help so far, but he remainss missing.
If anyone has seen anything then pleae contact the police. We would also ask people to check their sheds and outbuildings, especially in the Bilton and Killinghall area, it could be that he has taken shelter somewhere.
I just want my dad to come home safe and well.
