Police continue to appeal for information to find Leocardo Loney who went missing from Willow House retirement home in Victoria Court on August 3.

CCTV footage shows Leocardo left the care home just after 5.30pm but staff only realised he was missing when they went to give him breakfast.

There have been three possible sightings of him, the most recent in Hertfordshire last week.

On August 22 he was seen travelling on a Route 182 bus from Wembley towards Brent Cross.
