Fresh appeal for missing Leamington man Navi Uppal

Leamington Editorial 17th May, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A FRESH appeal for information has been made three months after a Leamington man went missing.

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

The 42 year-old was picked up by a taxi around 10pm and dropped off near Victoria Park but has not been seen from since.

Police have now released CCTV footage from Adelaide Road in the hope the man pictured may know something about what happened that night.

Investigating officer Insp Lee Crofts said: “It has now been three months since Navi was last seen and we remain very concerned for his well-being.

“We do not think the man pictured in the CCTV image was in anyway involved in Navi’s disappearance, but he was in the area where Navi was dropped off at a similar time so may have seen him.

“We are continuing to support Navi’s family during what has been an incredibly difficult time. I would ask the public to share our appeal, please use the hashtag #HelpFindNavi on social media to spread the word to reach as many people as possible.

“If you think this image could be of you, or someone you know, please get in touch.”

Mr Uppal is 5ft 8in tall and of athletic build with short black hair. When he left home he was clean shaven and he was last seen wearing a black jacket, a bright blue jumper, a white t-shirt and tan coloured ankle boots.

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