Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for a man who has been missing for almost a month. The last confirmed sighting of Nigel Redshaw was on April 18.

The 55-year-old was last seen on CCTV at Holgate Caravan Park in Silverdale on April 17. He was also seen at the Leighton Moss RSPB site the following day.

Since his disappearance, searches across Arnside and Silverdale have been carried out. Nigel is originally from Cheshire but police say he "has a footprint in all areas of Cumbria".


Nigel is described as being around 6ft 1ins tall and has a long beard and long hair which is often tied in a ponytail. He was last seen wearing a blue Berghaus waterproof jacket and may be carrying a maroon-coloured rucksack.

Inspector Ross Woods of South Lakes Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Since Nigel was reported to us as missing we have conducted a full investigation to find him. A team of officers have conducted extensive CCTV enquiries and searches across the Arnside and Silverdale areas.

“Nigel is originally from Cheshire but has a footprint in all areas of Cumbria. We are growing considerably concerned for Nigel’s welfare and safety and would urge anyone who has seen Nigel or knows where he may be to get in touch.

“I would also like to appeal directly to Nigel to contact us and let us know you are safe.”

Anyone who sees Nigel is asked to call 999. Any other information can be shared online via www.cumbria.police.uk/report-it or by phone on 101.
