The police have launched an appeal to find a vulnerable 68-year-old man who was missing in a holiday park in Dorset.

Kenneth Lowndes of Bognor Regis was last seen at around 11:00 pm Wednesday at the Sandford Holiday Park in Poole.

He was reported missing yesterday morning (Thursday, September 12), and efforts to find him continue.

Mr. Lowndes is described as white, of a very tall build, with white, short, white hair and two tattoos on each forearm.

He was freshly shaven and wore blue Slazenger sneakers, a dark blue raincoat, and dark track suits before he was missed.

The police believe that Mr. Lowndes has very little cash and no cellphone.

Inspector Danny Tamblyn from the Dorset police said, "We are worried about Kenneth and the officials have conducted a series of investigations on the ground.

"We know that Kenneth will use public transport such as buses and trains and is familiar with areas in Dorset such as Swanage and Bournemouth.

"I would urge anyone who saw Kenneth or a woman to contact the Dorset police."

Anyone with information or knowledge of Mr Lowndes's whereabouts should contact Dorset police by calling 55190143587.
