An urgent appeal is being made to trace Norman Cox a missing 54-year-old vulnerable man from Acton.

He was last seen at around 6pm on Friday, 11 March in the Acton High Street area.

Norman is a black male of medium build and due to an existing medical condition which effects his mental health, is extremely vulnerable. At time of his disappearance, he was wearing a dark jacket and green trousers.

Ashford Longdon, Norman’s cousin, appealed for any information - he said, “I am so worried about my cousin. He is very vulnerable and I am going out my mind with worry about his disappearance. I just want him to come home and know he is safe.”

Detective Inspector Barry Williams from the West Area Command Unit said, “Norman has now been missing for a week, which as you can imagine has been an unbearably worrying time for his loved ones. The longer he is missing, the more our concern grows for him.

“I an appealing to anyone that can help find Norman to come forward and make contact with the police. If you know of Norman’s whereabouts or can provide any information that might help us bring Norman home, please give us a call.”


Norman’s family and officers are increasingly concerned for his wellbeing and would urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 7261/11MAR.
