Police are appealing for information to locate a missing man in Leeds.

He is described as white male, 6ft of medium build with short blonde hair, wearing grey joggers, light blue sweatshirt, and black trainers.

Lesley may appear confused, and officers are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Lesley is asked to contact Leeds District Police without delay by calling 101 or via the 101LiveChat function on the website quoting reference 725 of 20th July.
