A police force has said they are "increasingly concerned" about the welfare of a missing 78-year-old man last seen on a bus.

Colin Purton has been missing from his home in Penyffordd, Flintshire, since Wednesday.

The pensioner was last seen on CCTV travelling by bus just before 08:00 BST from Mold on Thursday morning.

North Wales Police are appealing for anyone with information who may have seen him in the area.

Sgt Philip Wright said: "We are urging local residents, including dog walkers and ramblers to keep an eye out for Mr Purton. We are also asking people to check their gardens and any outbuildings".

Search and rescue dogs have also been brought into the search.
