Police and members of his family are very concerned for his welfare and are the public to call police if they see a man matching his description or know where he is.

Mandeep is of Indian appearance with short black hair, black stubble and brown eyes. He is of slim build and was wearing a grey t-shirt, grey track-suit trousers and white trainers with black detail.

Sergeant Ray Milligan of York Police, said: “We are very worried for Mandeep’s welfare as it is very out of character for him to go missing. He does not have his mobile phone with him, so is out of contact. To our knowledge, he has no access to money as he left his bank cards behind.

“We are appealing to anyone who may have seen Mandeep in the Heworth and wider York area and to anyone who may have seen him using public transport, to please contact the police. Better still if Mandeep sees this appeal, we urge you to contact the police, your family or friends and let us know that you are safe.”

Anyone who can help is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass information to the Force Control Room.
