Officers searching for missing 76-year-old Peter Kerevan are continuing to appeal for information on his whereabouts after a further reported sighting of him.
Peter, who is from the Aintree area, has been missing from home since Monday 29 July. Following enquiries, he was captured on CCTV later that morning on Wango Lane.
It has now been reported that Peter was seen at around 3pm the same day outside Maghull Chiropodists near the junction of Sefton Lane and Liverpool Road, and officers are focusing their search on the surrounding areas.
Superintendent Graeme Robson said: “We have now received a report that Peter was sighted outside the Chiropodists on the afternoon of Monday, 29 July and we have officers and extensive resources in that area continuing the search for him.
“I would ask anyone who has been in the Maghull or Aintree areas over the past week to please cast your minds back and try and remember seeing Peter. When last seen, he was wearing a short-sleeved dark blue shirt and carrying a dark-coloured jacket or jumper. He was also reportedly wearing blue jeans and brown shoes.
“I would also like to remind people to remain safe when they are out searching for Peter. The response from the public has been remarkable and we greatly appreciate your help, but please take care if you are out in dangerous areas and make sure you have the correct equipment or seek help from our specially trained Matrix officers.”
Peter is described as white, around 6ft tall, of slim build with short grey hair and had stubble when last seen and anyone who believes they may have seen Peter or someone who resembles his description should call 101, DM @MerPolCC or in an emergency, call 999.
