Update: Lancashire Police say Mark has been found safe and well in Manchester

The 44-year-old was last seen at the Priory Hospital in Rosemary Lane, Bartle, around 6pm.

DI Jo Keay from Lancashire Police said: “This man presented himself at hospital in Manchester and could not provide any details about himself or where he was from. He was then transferred to the Priory Hospital in Bartle which is where he went missing from nearly two weeks ago.


“We have been carrying out a number of enquiries to try and find him since he was reported missing to us but there have been no confirmed sightings and we still know very little about him. Although he gave his name to the hospital as Mark King, our enquiries so far suggest that this could well be incorrect and we’re appealing to anyone who knows anything about him to come forward.

“We are getting really concerned about his welfare and we need to find him to make sure that he is safe. That’s why we’re asking for the public’s help in finding him. If anyone recognises him, or has any information about him, then please do get in touch with us as soon as possible. Even the smallest piece of information about him could help with our search.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 1090 of 7th January.
