Fears grow for fate of missing man

By Constantinos Psillides

POLICE say they fear the worst for 75-year-old Mamas Neokleous who was reported missing five days ago.

“We have looked for him everywhere, all the places he could have gone to, but our search has turn up nothing. This, unfortunately, leads us to some ugly conclusions,” said Limassol police spokesman, Ioannis Soteriades

Neokleous suffers from Alzheimer’s and was reported missing from his retirement home in the Zakkaki area, Limassol district, on Monday. Neokleous is described as being 1,80m tall, thin, with white hair.

Soteriades told the press that police has officers from all precincts out looking for Neokleous but have found no trace of him so far.

Due to his disease, Neokleous might be disoriented and he is probably malnourished and dehydrated.

Police have urged anyone who might have seen Neokleous and has information about his whereabouts to contact their nearest police station immediately.
