West Midlands Police Appeal For Two Missing Men

West Midlands Police have issued two separate appeals for help in tracing two missing men, both missing for over a week.

32-year-old Saresh Kumar, was last seen on Sunday, 20 September when he collapsed whilst visiting relatives on Howell Road, Blakenhall.

The family called for medical help and Saresh ran away before he could be treated, police said.

Saresh, also known as 'Bunty', does not have a fixed address but is believed to come from the Wolverhampton area.

He is described as Asian, around 5ft 7ins tall and of a slim build. He was last seen wearing black trousers, black shirt and no shoes.

Mark Rushton, from Wolverhampton police, said: "We need to make sure that Saresh is safe and well and we are appealing to anyone who has seen him to call us with information.

"He ran away from the house after an ambulance was called and he has not been seen since.

"We have trawled CCTV and believe that he was last seen heading towards Goldthorn Park area at around 7pm on Sunday 20 September.

"His family are obviously concerned for his health and we really need to speak to him as soon as possible."

If anyone has any information as to his whereabouts then please call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively people can leave information by calling the Missing People charity on 116 000.

Police have also appealed for help to trace 15-year-old Joel Callum, who has been missing from his home in Coventry since Monday, 21 September.

Officers are appealing to Joel to contact them to make sure that he is safe and well.

PC Farzana Bibi, from Coventry police station, said: "Joel has been missing many times before but never this long.

"We believe that he may still be in the Stoke are and are appealing to anyone who has seen him to come forward with information.

"He is not in any trouble; we just need to make sure he is safe and well."

As part of their efforts to find the teen, officers have spoken to friends and family and visited a number of properties. CCTV footage has also been reviewed and all police forces informed of his disappearance.
