Police are continuing to appeal for any information as to the whereabouts of some of the longest-running missing person cases in the West Midlands.

Terence Potts was last seen on 10 November 1999 in Digbeth, Birmingham, and officers have made a fresh bid to ask for help to find him 24 years after he was last seen - in the hope someone may have information about what happened to him.

Although he was last seen in 1999, Terence’s last contact with his family was in 2001 and he was officially reported missing in 2006 when he was aged 61.

Terence was known to have been familiar with other parts of the West Midlands, including Wolverhampton and Sandwell. He would be 78 years old now and was around 5ft 4ins tall with several tattoos, including on his arms, hands and chest.

In 2006 police appealed for any information to find Terence, who lived in the Camp Hill area for a time when he lost contact with his family. He had grey collar-length hair, was of a slim build and blue eyes.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police explained: “This image of Terence was taken in the mid to late 1990s and we are hoping releasing his image may jog someone’s memory and help us find out what became of him.

“If you think you have any information about Terence’s disappearance, please get in touch with the Locate team on 0121 626 7003. Any piece of information could be vital to our investigation.”
