Main article content
Thames Valley Police is continuing to appeal for the public’s help in tracing a missing man from Kidlington.
Derek Brant, aged 63, from Kidlington, was reported missing last Friday (23/7).
The last sighting of Derek was near St Anne’s College, Woodstock Road, Oxford at around 3pm on Saturday (24/7).
We also have potential sightings of Derek near Sainsbury’s in Kidlington and Sandy Lane in Yarnton but these have not yet been confirmed.
He was last wearing a navy/black coloured polo shirt and black cargo trousers and a florescent jacket (please see image).
Superintendent Emma Garside, LPA Commander for Cherwell and West Oxfordshire, said: “We are continuing in our efforts to locate Derek and are still concerned for his welfare.
“As such we are again asking members of the public to report any potential sightings of him.
“We believe he was last seen wearing a navy/black coloured polo shirt and black cargo trousers as well as florescent jacket.
“It is possible that Derek has been sleeping outside and may look unkempt.
“We know that Derek can often be found in the local community assisting with litter picking and so we would ask people to please keep an eye out if you see anyone matching this description litter picking in the Kidlington, Summertown or surrounding areas.
“We would also ask people to check cars, sheds, outhouses and their gardens as well as other places of shelter in case Derek has been staying there overnight.
“If anyone sees Derek please call 101 immediately quoting reference 43210328398, or if they have information about an earlier sighting please call the same number.”
