‘Missing’ pensioner Seymour Gayle, 73, found safe and well—in hospital

A ‘high risk’ pensioner reported missing from his home in London’s East End has been found safe and well.

Police looking for 73-year-old Seymour Gayle, last seen on Tuesday in Fairfield Road, Bow, where he lives alone, located him at the weekend in hospital.

Mr Gayle had gone in for routine medical treatment, unknown to neighbours who reported his absence to the Missing Persons office at Limehouse police station. Posters appealing for help were handed out in the neighbourhood before he was traced.
