Sidney Edling (left, obviously) in a photo supplied by his granddaughter Sarah Billington.

Please take a look at the photo, it’s of 86 year old pensioner Sidney Edlin who went missing from his home in Bentley, Walsall at 3pm yesterday, Thursday 2nd April 2015 – Sidney’s family and West Midlands Police are very worried about him.

Have you seen this elderly, vulnerable gentleman? If so, please contact the police who are very concerned for his welfare.

West Midlands Police said:

MISSING-have you seen Sidney Edlin (86) from Walsall? He’s been gone since 3pm yesterday and we are very concerned.

Sidney left his home in Bentley and we need to find him – he catches the bus to Walsall Town Centre and walks around the canals in Pleck.

He also visits canals in Rough Wood please keep a look out for him he wears a brown flat cap and beige coat and is very vulnerable- call 101.

I’m sure I’m familiar with Sidney as I often pass by what I think must be him on the canal in Walsall – he always exchanges a cheery greeting.

If you see him, or have any information at all, please can you call West Midlands Police on 101 or the Missing People charity on 116 000.


Let’s find this chap, please!
