66-year-old has not been seen for two weeks.

Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 66-year-old man who has been missing for the last two weeks.

Barry Millgate, of Weymouth, was last seen at his home address on Monday, September 5

He left in a grey Nissan Note - although it is believed that he may have returned this vehicle to a garage.

PC Kath MacHardy said: “Barry has not made contact with his partner for two weeks now and such behaviour is completely out of character.

“Naturally, she is extremely worried that he has come to some harm.”

Barry is white and six feet four inches tall, with brown eyes and receding hair that is white on the sides.

He was wearing beige trousers and a navy waterproof jacket when he was last seen.

PC MacHardy added: “If anyone has seen Barry - or knows of his whereabouts - then please contact us urgently.

“It’s possible that he is staying with friends in Exeter or another area within Devon or Cornwall.

“My message to Barry is to please contact either your family or Dorset Police as soon as possible. We just want to check that you are safeand well - any calls from you will be treated in absolute confidence.”

Anyone with any information or knowledge as to Barry’s whereabouts should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 5:481.
