Kennington residents urged to check dashcam and doorbell footage in search for ‘extremely vulnerable’ missing 79-year-old

Fears are growing for a missing 79-year-old man last seen in Kennington on Saturday.

Police say Edward Baller left his North Kensington at around midday to visit a flat he rented out in Kennington, in Wincott Street. He did not return home.

He has not been seen or heard from since, and officers say they are ‘extremely concerned’ for his welfare and are now appealing for anyone with information or footage from doorbell cameras or dashcams to come forward.

They stress the investigation is still a missing person enquiry.

Edward, pictured, was wearing dark coloured trousers, a denim jacket and carrying a denim bag when he went missing.

He is white, has an average build and grey hair.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Wood, from the Met’s specialist crime team, is leading the investigation.

“Edward is extremely vulnerable and it is important that we locate him as soon as possible,” he said. 

“I would ask that anyone in the vicinity of Wincott Street checks their doorbell and dashcam footage for any sightings of Edward.

“Officers from the specialist crime team are currently leading the investigation to locate Edward, however I must stress that this remains a missing person enquiry. 

“We are currently following a number of lines of enquiry, one possibility is that Edward may have had a medical issue and is unable to contact his friends and family. 

“I would ask anyone who may have seen him to contact police immediately so we can bring Edward home safely.”

Anyone with information to call 999 or contact the Missing People charity anonymously by calling 116 000.
