Concern For The Welfare of Missing Hove Man
Sussex Police are this afternoon concerned for the welfare of a recently reported missing Hove man named Anton Newman.
He was last seen on Sunday 15th July at 11:37am in Nevill Avenue in Hove and Alisa Funnell of Sussex Police has expressed the worries surrounding Newman stating: “We are concerned for Anton’s welfare”.
Sussex Police have released the above image of Newman in an appeal to those who may have recently seen him and have information. However it must be taken into account that this is not a completely accurate representation of Newman’s current appearance as Police state that his hair is now shaved. Newman is further described as being white, 6’1″, of a slim build and with a pale complexion.
It is also reported that the last time Newman was seen he was wearing a cream jumper, blue jeans and black socks but was not wearing any shoes at the time of his disappearance. However Police stress that he may now be wearing shoes.
Despite Newman’s whereabouts as currently unknown, Sussex Police have stated that he is known to have links to Brighton and Hove and that specifically the St Anne’s Days Centre in St James’s Street, Kemp Town, Brighton could be a possible place of interest to Newman.
Police are urging anyone with any information regarding Newman’s whereabouts to immediately contact the Police, with PC Funnell adding: “He maybe sleeping rough or in a tent in woodland in the Brighton area. If anyone has seen him or knows where he may be, please let us know.”
You can contact the Police directly online or by calling 101 and quoting serial 552 of 15/07.
