John Hart

Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing man who worked in North Baddesley.

John Francis Hart, 65 ran a car repair business in Castle Lane in the village until it recently shut. He was reported missing on September 4 by his brother but hasn’t been heard from since August 18 and was last seen the day before by his daughter and ex-partner.

It’s known John has been depressed recently and it’s believed he may be living rough in the Southampton area. He has no known current address.

John is described as: 5ft 10ins tall and of stocky build. He has grey short hair but is balding and it’s believed he currently has a beard.

Officers are today releasing details of John and a photo in the hope that someone may know where he is. They are asking John himself or anyone who knows where he may be to get in contact with them.

They are asked to call the Duty Sergeant at Romsey police station on 101.
