POLICE are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing Canadian man who had been staying with family in Barnsley. 

Gerrard Wright, 42, was last seen on June 2 in Hoyland.

He has been in telephone contact with family members, but was reported missing to police on Thursday (June 18) after they hadn’t heard from him in over a week.

Police are appealing to anyone who might have seen him to get in touch and to Gerrard directly to make contact with his family.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting incident number 1134 of 18 June 2015.
