A disabled ex-serviceman on a charity walk has gone missing while camping on Teesside, police said.

Albert Edwards, who has a prosthetic leg, was last seen leaving his tent in Skinningrove on Monday.

The 61-year-old had been in the area for 10 days and told locals he was an ex-serviceman travelling from Land's End to John O'Groats.

Cleveland Police said a member of the public had reported him missing after finding his tent and other camping kit.

Police said he has a shaved head, a grey moustache and a goatee beard.

Cornish accent

He also has a V-shaped scar on the bridge of his nose and may be wearing glasses.

Mr Edwards was last seen at about 09:00 BST on Monday and has left his camping equipment in the village.

The man is said to have a Cornish accent and to have walked with a stick.

A Cleveland Police spokesman said: "Police have already carried out house to house and other enquiries in the area but they urge anyone who has seen this man or who knows his whereabouts to get in touch.

"It has been confirmed that he has a prosthetic left leg from the knee down."
