Missing: James Stephenson

POLICE are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 40-year-old man from Barnsley.


James 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 have been confirmed sightings of Mr Stephenson getting on a train in Leeds and getting off the train at London King's Cross. He is also known to frequent Barnsley and Wakefield.


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.
