CONCERNS are growing for the safety of 33-year old Daniel Skelton from South Craven who has not been seen for 10 days.

Police in Craven have issued an urgent missing person appeal and are asking people to report any sightings of Daniel who is believed to have gone missing from his home in Cross Hills between 10pm on Wednesday, May 24 and 6am on Thursday, May 25.

A police spokesperson said: "Officers believe that he may have made his way to the canal and are asking anyone to be particularly vigilant on the stretch of water between Skipton and Silsden, possibly even as far afield as Leeds.

"Daniel is described as white, 6ft 2in tall, slim build with short dark brown hair. Daniel was last seen wearing a burgundy tee-shirt, dark, knee length shorts, blue Adidas trainers with a bright orange sole and a black baseball cap.

"He was carrying a large gym bag/holdall which officers believe contained a change of clothes, so there is a possibility that he could be wearing something different to the outfit in the description."

Anyone who has seen Daniel or someone who matches his description, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police without delay on 101, option 1.

For immediate sightings, people should call police on 999 so officers can make sure he is safe and well.
