A PENSIONER who was reported missing over the weekend has been found.

Cheshire Police issued an appeal for information on Sunday morning after
80-year-old Phillip Whalley went missing from his home in Clifton Crescent, Frodsham.

Mr Whalley had not been seen since 5pm on Saturday and was reported missing to police five hours later when he failed to return home. Police had been very concerned for his welfare as he would be in need of medication.

night and taken to hospital to be checked over.

“Eighty-year-old Phillip Whalley failed to return to his home in Clifton Crescent, Frodsham.
