Fundraiser reaches its £2,000 target as Colin hunt continues

A FUNDRAISING page has been set up to help find missing Dewsbury pensioner Colin Vasey.

The 81-year-old has been missing from his home in Shaw Cross for nearly three weeks.

A major search operation has been running with specialist search officers, police patrols, underwater search teams, drones and helicopters all being used to try and find him.

Volunteers from as far away as Kent and Wales have travelled to Dewsbury to help in the search, and a Facebook page called ‘Find Colin Vasey’ has reached over 18,000 members.

An online GoFundMe page has reached its £2,000 target to help fund more specialist search teams. Colin was last seen on the day he went missing, Sunday, November 17, at 6.01am, walking past Dewsbury Minster on Aldams Road. It is thought he was wearing a blue fleece, dressing gown, grey pyjama bottoms and a dark-coloured beanie hat.

Police underwater search teams have been focusing their efforts in and around the River Calder, but there have been no confirmed sightings since he was seen on the CCTV footage.
