Leamington Editorial 6th Apr, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE family of a ‘much loved’ man who went missing from his home in Leamington are appealing for information about his disappearance.

Sakhminder Uppal, also known as Navi, was last seen at his homeĀ in Freshwater Grove on Sunday 14 February.

At around 10pm the 42 year-old was picked up by a taxi from his home address and dropped off near Victoria Park. He has not been seen from since.

In a bid to find out more about what happened to Mr Uppal, his family have released a statement and a new picture.

They said: “Navi is a much loved son and brother and we miss him terribly. We would appeal to anyone who may have any information about his whereabouts; if you have seen him please get in touch with police. No matter how insignificant you may think it is, any information is valuable.

“Navi, if you see this then please get in touch, we just want to know you are safe. We all miss you and we love you.”

Mr Uppal is around 6ft tall and of athletic build with short black hair. When he left home he was clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, a bright blue jumper, a white t-shirt and tan coloured ankle boots.

Police inspector Lee Crofts said: “Today marks a month since Navi went missing, and we are still appealing for anyone who may have any information relating to his whereabouts to contact us.

“Understandably, Navi’s family are desperate for any information about his whereabouts. Warwickshire Police continue to support the family in their bid to find him safe and well.

“I would ask the public to continue to share our appeal, please use the hashtag #HelpFindNavi on social media to spread the word to reach as many people as possible.”

Those with any information can call Warwickshire Police on 101 or 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
