  Concern As Man Goes Missing From Redditch


                               Joseph Trybuchowicz who has gone missing from Redditch.

Police are concerned for the welfare of  a  24-year-old man who has gone missing from Redditch and are appealing for help to trace him.

Joseph Trybuchowicz was last seen by his father, who he lives with, at his home in Lime Tree Close, Batchley, at 3pm on Thursday, 1 March. He went out and was reported missing shortly after 9pm  (Friday)  when he failed to return.

Mr Trybuchowicz  is described as vulnerable and has been suffering from depression. He has family  in the Church Hill area of Redditch and also at Wythall but has not contacted them. Police are not aware of any friends or associates he may be staying with and are concerned for his welfare.

Officers, including dog handlers, have searched his neighbourhood and surrounding woodland, and the force helicopter has also been involved.

Mr Trybuchowicz left his home on foot and does not have access to his own transport. He is white but of Mediterranean appearance, around 5ft 6inches in height with short, black hair and a thin to medium build. He speaks with an English accent. When last seen he was wearing dark clothing. 

 Sergeant Ben Hembry of West Mercia Police said: “He has not gone missing before so this is completely out of character for him. His mobile phone has been switched off since yesterday morning (Friday) and we are concerned for his welfare. I would urge him to contact his family or the police so that we can establish that he is safe and we are appealing for anyone who has or thinks they have seen him, or knows where he is now, to contact us as a matter of urgency.”
