Search for missing Dunedin man continuing


Police are continuing to appeal to the public for sightings of missing 63-year-old Dunedin man Gordon McLean who has not been found overnight.

There are serious concerns for his well-being after he left Wakari Hospital, Taieri Road at approximately 3pm yesterday afternoon.

Gordy is approximately 152cm tall, of very thin build, and considered frail.

He was last seen wearing a dark-coloured polar fleece and trousers, and a red-coloured polo shirt.

He had brown slippers on and a black puffer sleeveless jacket.

If you see him, please call 111 immediately.
