UPDATE 17th December: Mr McCandish has been found safe and well
Police are appealing for information about a 43 year old man who was last seen on Saturday.
Andrew McCandlish from Morecambe was last seen in the A and E department at Royal Lancaster Infirmary on Saturday 13 December. He was awaiting a medical assessment but is thought to have left the hospital at around 3.30pm.
He is described as white, around 5ft 7 tall, of a medium build with hazel coloured eyes. He is bald and has tattoos on his hands and arms, wings on his chest and a picture of a woman on the front of one of his legs.
He was last seen wearing a grey patterned Lonsdale hooded jumper, faded black jeans and a black and grey beanie hat with a silver emblem on it. He is thought to have had black thermals underneath his clothes and was wearing black hiking boots.
He could still be within the Lancaster and Morecambe area but it is thought that he may have links to parts of West Lancashire in Ormskirk, Burscough and Wigan.
PC Adele Laffan of Morecambe Police said: “Andrew has been missing for two days now and I would appeal to anyone who has seen him or knows where he is to contact us. We are growing increasingly concerned about his welfare and he may not have important medication with him.”
