Yateley man now missing for more than a week

Residents are being asked to re-check their gardens and outbuildings for any sign of the 50-year-old

The search is continuing for a 50-year-old man from Yateley who has been missing for more than a week.

Andrew Chalkley, who suffers from breathing problems, was last seen outside his home in Goldcrest Close on Tuesday April 22.

He was reported missing that evening.

Due to his poor health, police officers and his family are concerned for his welfare.

Andrew is white, of medium build, about 6ft tall, and he has short black and greying hair.

Police said that because he suffered with "swollen feet and shortness of breath", he may stop regularly when walking.

An extensive search by police dogs, the police helicopter and volunteers from Hampshire Search and Rescue, which focused on places Andrew is known to visit in Yateley, has failed to locate him.

Inspector Chris White said: "We are continuing our efforts to trace Andrew and would encourage local residents to re-check their gardens and outbuildings for any sign of him.

"Please also stay vigilant while you are out and about and report any possible sightings to the police as soon as possible.

"We continue to work closely with Andrew's family who have a designated point of contact available to them during this difficult time to keep them updated on the investigation."

Anyone who may have seen Andrew should contact the police on 101.
