The wife of a missing Wisbech man has spoken of her distress as she waits for news.
Malcolm Brown (66) left his home in Falklands Drive, Wisbech, at about 6.30pm last Tuesday and has not been heard from since.
“All I want him to do is just walk in,” Mrs Brown said. “I just want him back. I can’t understand how he can just disappear.”
Mr Brown often went for walks and his wife said it was not unusual for him to go out twice a day. He never took his mobile phone as he “hates gadgets”.
He was wearing a grey jacket, black jumper, blue trousers and black shoes when he left his house. With the cold weather and lack of contact, police are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
Mrs Brown said there was nothing in his behaviour to suggest something was wrong and added: “We’ve been racking our brains, trying to think of anything odd he did, but there’s nothing. He was just normal.”
Police and search and rescue were out at the weekend, searching land around the Wisbech A47 car wash – not far from his house – for any sign of Mr Brown.
PC Lorna Owen, from the force’s missing persons department, said: “We are concerned about Malcolm because his disappearance is out of character. He left on foot with little money, no phone or extra clothing for cold weather and has made no contact with family or friends.
“I would urge anyone who believes they have seen him to contact police.”
