George is described as white, 5ft 6in tall with white receding hair, hazel eyes and a pale complexion. He has a habit of clenching his hands when he walks. When he is not wearing gloves he has a habit of touching each finger in turn to his thumb, as if he’s counting.

Inspector Alex Langley of Harrogate police, said: 

I would like to reiterate my appeal to hoteliers, guest house owners and members of the public, particularly in York and Leeds, to let us know if you believe you have seen George or know where he is now.

Anyone with information about George Bass is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the Force Control Room, or you can contact the missing people charity on 116000.
