A RENEWED appeal for information has been made six 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 or heard from since.

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.

A statement released by his family read: “We haven’t given up hope and would again ask anyone who may have seen Navi to please contact the police. No matter how insignificant you may think it is, any information is valuable.

“Navi is a much-loved son, brother and friend and we continue to miss him terribly. At family occasions, his absence is deeply felt.

“If you see this Navi, 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: “Navi has not been seen or heard from for six months now, 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 and we continue to support the family in their bid to find him safe and well.

“I would ask the public to continue sharing our appeal using 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 Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
