POLICE have issued an urgent appeal for help to trace an unemployed solicitor who went missing after a job interview.
Christopher Parry, from Shirley, was last seen at around 6.20am on Friday (February 27) when he left his sons flat on Stratford Road.
The 54-year-old was reported missing to police at around 8.30am the following day (Saturday) when he failed to return home from a job interview in Worcester.
An investigation was immediately launched with officers searching his home, speaking to friends and relatives.
Inspector Adrian Taylor, from Solihull Police said from the initial inquiries it appears that on the day he went missing Christopher had a job interview at 9am in Worcester.
He added: “To disappear like this is out of character for Christopher and we, like his family and friends, are concerned for his welfare.
“It is thought that he travelled by train from Shirley railway station for the meeting.
“There is also a suggestion that he may be staying at a hotel in the city.
“We’re working hard to substantiate that information and would urge Worcester hoteliers to contact us immediately if Christopher Parry or anyone matching his description has checked in with them.”
Christopher Parry is white, 6’2 tall and broad.
He has brown eyes and short grey-white hair.
He has contacts in Colchester, Essex.
At the time of his disappearance it is believed that he was wearing a dark suit.
Christopher or anyone who knows where he is should call police immediately on 101.
