THE DEVASTATED family of a Leamington man who has been missing for a month have made a heartfelt plea for his safe return.

Sakhminder Uppal – known as Navi – was last seen at his home address in Freshwater Grove on February 14.

It is believed the 42-year-old, who is 5ft 8in tall and clean shaven with short black hair, was picked up from his home by taxi and dropped off near to Victoria Park. He has not been heard from since.

Navi was wearing a black jacket, a bright blue jumper, a white t-shirt and tan coloured ankle boots on the day of his disappearance.

An appeal was launched by police shortly afterwards and Navi’s family have now released a new image in the hope it may jog someone’s memory or lead to new information regarding his current whereabouts.

In a statement, 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.

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

Investigating officer, Inspector Lee Crofts added: “Understandably, Navi’s family are desperate for any information about his whereabouts and 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 and please use the hashtag #HelpFindNavi on social media to spread the word to reach as many people as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or 00441926 415000 from outside the United Kingdom.
