The family of Peter Brown, from Whitby, North Yorkshire, have made a public appeal for information about his whereabouts, as they believe he may be one of the homeless people homed in Croydon during the covid-19 crisis.
Peter Brown’s wife, Natalie, says, “My husband was in hospital in May 2019 suffering with a mental health illness. He went missing from hospital on May 8, 2019. A police and public search has been underway ever since.
“My husband is suffering with major mental health problems, including memory loss. This may mean he is confused about his name, address, family details, etc. He is very vulnerable. Our children and I are desperate to get Pete home safely. He is very much loved and missed.”
