Police have issued a new picture in their hunt for a missing South Tyneside pensioner.
Police appealing for the whereabouts of 88-year-old Alexander Cromar are continuing to ask the public for their help in tracing him.
Mr Cromar was reported missing three days after he left his home in Concorde Way in Jarrow. He is white, 5 ft 7 inches tall, of skinny build, with white hair.
He's known to wear either a flat cap or trilby hat but not all the time.
Detective Chief Inspector Christina Barrett, said: "Mr Cromar was last seen on Sunday and his family are increasingly concerned for his welfare and understandably want to hear that he is ok.
"He's not in very good health and takes medication, he can become confused at times and is hard of hearing and we class him as vulnerable.
"We know that he is well known in the area and that in the past he has travelled to Newcastle and Sunderland as well as further to places such as Chester-le-Street, Sheffield and Blackpool.
"We're asking the public to help us find him and would urge anyone who sees him or has any information about his whereabouts to contact us."
Anyone with any information should contact Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191.
