"If you think you see him, please do not approach him but call 999.

"If you have any information which could help us find him, please call the non-emergency number 101 or make a report online using the reference 43200011074.

    So are they concerned for his welfare? or are they wanting to arrest him? Why call 999 if he is just missing? so many holes in this article!!
