With just over a week to go until Christmas police are re-appealing for help to locate missing Newcastle man Michael Whinham.

Michael Richard Whinham, who is 31 and from Oakfield Gardens in Newcastle, was reported missing to police on November 23.

The last confirmed sighting of Michael was on November 14 in the Quayside area of Newcastle and there has been no trace of him or contact from him since.

Police and his family are becoming increasingly worried for his welfare and enquiries are ongoing to locate him.

Officers are releasing CCTV images of Michael that were taken on November 14 at Newcastle Crown Court.

The images show the clothing he was wearing the last time that he was seen - a black hooded jacket, a black and white Newcastle United shirt, dark trousers and dark trainers.

Michael's friends and family have not seen or heard from him since that date and they, and police, are increasingly worried for his safety.

Officers are making a direct appeal to Michael to contact police, wherever he may be, or his family and let them know he is safe and well.

If you have seen Michael, or have any information about his whereabouts, then contact police on 101 extension 69191.
