POLICE are growing increasingly concerned of the whereabouts of a 39-year-old man.

Neil Reaper was last seen at the Mechanics Arms pub, Leigh Road, Hindley between 6pm and 7.30pm on Monday 16 May 2011, before he left to go home.

Neil is described as white, 6ft 3in tall, thin build and has dark receding hair. The last time he was seen, Neil was wearing a brown coat, dark blue jeans and white trainers.

Detective Inspector Amber Waywell from Wigan CID said: “Neil’s family are very worried about him as he has not been missing before.

“Neil’s friends from the pub believe he left to go home and I would urge anyone who may have seen him either walking from the pub or catching a bus to the Leigh area to contact us.

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 7279/7226 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
