An appeal has been launched to find an elderly man deemed high risk due to the advance stages of his dementia.

Abdoulahi Ndoye from Hackney went missing on Wednesday and was last seen in Lea Bridge Road at the junction with Albany Road in Leyton.

"He has only been living in Hackney for approximately a week and may have attempted to return to Newham which he knows well.

"He frequents the public transport network, particularly buses and I would request that the public's focus is directed towards these areas.
