POLICE have re-appealed for information ten days after a 40-year-old Barnsley man was reported missing.

Despite extensive enquiries across the country, James Stephenson is yet to be found. It's believed that he may now be in the Dewsbury or Batley areas of West Yorkshire.

Mr Stephenson was last seen at around 10.15am on March 18, when he left the Cambian Oaks Hospital in Sheffield Road, Barnsley. He told staff he intended to go shopping to the Huddersfield area, but never returned.

There was a confirmed sighting of Mr Stephenson getting on a train in Leeds and getting off the train in London (as seen in the two CCTV images).

Mr Stephenson is described as having ginger-coloured hair and is approximately 5ft 8ins tall. When last seen, he was wearing a dark overcoat with a grey hooded top underneath and jeans.

Anyone with any information on Mr Stephenson’s whereabouts should call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 589 of March 18, 2014.
