Police searching for missing man with no memory 

Published

on

Officers are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of Andrew Lambert, 58, from Camborne, Cornwall, who is known to have visited the south east of the country recently.
Andrew (pictured) went missing from Treliske Hospital in Truro, Cornwall, on Tuesday 5 May at around 2.30pm and has been travelling around the country since then.

He suffers from a condition which causes amnesia so he may be in a confused state, and may not even respond to his name.

Officers believe Andrew has visited Broadmarsh Centre in Nottingham; Wisbech in Cambridgeshire; Lowestoft in Suffolk; Woolwich, Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and Stratford stations in London; Eastbourne in East Sussex; and West Malling in Kent since he went missing.

Andrew is known to have visited Oxford on Monday 18 May at around 3pm which is the most recent information officers have of his whereabouts.

Andrew is described as 6ft tall, of medium build, with grey hair and a beard. He wears glasses, walks with a limp, uses a stick and usually wears shirts and jeans. He was last seen carrying a sleeping bag.

As well as having family in Norfolk and Kent, Andrew also has links to Hertfordshire.

Chief Inspector Mark Bolt said: “Andrew has disappeared before and has been found in locations across the UK such as South Wales and a forest in Somerset. 

“We believe that he is using the bus as his main method of transport and we urgently need to speak to him to check on his welfare.

“Officers are focussing their efforts in the south east of the country at present and are appealing for anyone who knows of his whereabouts to get in touch.” 

Anyone who has seen Andrew since he went missing or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call Devon and Cornwall Police on 101 immediately, quoting reference 252 of 7 May.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
