Police ask residents to check sheds & outhouses in hunt for missing Mark

Police officers in Ulverston are continuing their efforts to locate Mark Westall who has been missing from home for more than two weeks.

Officers began to scale down the large area searches at the end of last week but officers remain dedicated to the enquiry in the hope of reuniting Mark with his family.

Police officers are re-visiting North Lonsdale Road and the surrounding area over the next few days to conduct leaflet drops with local residents and businesses, urging people to check in any sheds, garages or outhouses in case Mark is sheltering.

Sergeant Mark Lyon Maris said: “Our search for Mark is continuing and we haven’t given up hope of finding him safe.
"We have covered a lot of ground in our efforts to find him over the last 17 days and there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes to try and establish his last known movements and any potential places he may have visited.
“We would continue to appeal to local people to be vigilant and keep Mark in mind – if you think you have seen someone matching his description, call us immediately. We are also asking Mark’s neighbours and local businesses to check in sheds and outhouses in case Mark is sheltering somewhere close to home.
“We remain in close contact with Mark’s family and are supporting them as best we can. Mark, if you are reading or listening to this, please contact your family to let them know you are safe. You are not in any trouble – your family are extremely worried about you and want to know that you are safe.”

Mark is described as white, 5' 6'' tall, of a stocky build with dark brown, collar length wavy hair. He was last seen wearing an orange jacket and blue trousers, with a light coloured sweatshirt worn under his jacket.

If you think you have seen Mark or have any information about his whereabouts, please contact Ulverston police on 101 immediately.
