He was last known to be wearing black jogging bottoms, Reebok trainers, a blue hooded top and either a blue or white t-shirt. It is thought he may also be wearing glasses.

Inspector Philip James, of GMP’s Wigan borough, said: “It is completely out of character for Kevin to go missing, he has never gone missing before and his family are awfully worried. Kevin requires regular medication and we are particularly concerned that since he went missing he hasn’t had access to any of this.

“If you think you might have seen Kevin, or someone matching his description, then please contact us. Any information could really help us find him to make sure he is safe and well.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 1976 of Sunday 6 August 2017.
