Possible sighting of vulnerable man who went missing from his Sheffield home six days ago
Detectives investigating the disappearance of a vulnerable man who went missing from his Sheffield home on Monday have released details of a possible sighting of him.
23-year-old Minod Monger left his home in Ecclesfield at around 5.30pm on Monday, June 10, and was subsequently spotted walking along Remington Road, Parson Cross at around 6.09pm and 6.23pm that evening.
Police have released details of a possible sighting of Minod on Wooley Wood Bottom near to Ecclesfield between 12.45pm and 1.15pm on Thursday, June 13.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a man matching Minod’s description or drove along the road between these times and may have captured their drive on dashcam footage. “Please view your footage and if you have captured an image, which looks like Minod please contact South Yorkshire Police.
Minod was last seen wearing a white jacket, grey jogging bottoms and black crocs.
During a press conference held on Thursday, Chief Inspector Helen Lewis said Minod left home without his phone and is not believed to have any money or bank cards with him.
Ch Insp Lewis said Minod is regarded to be ‘vulnerable’ because he needs support with aspects of everyday life and is not used to being in busy places or mixing with people he does not know.
For this reason, members of the public who see him are asked not to approach him, and to call 999 immediately.
Chf Insp Lewis said Minod spends most of his time at home with his parents, Chandra Bahadur Monger and Tuli Maya Monger, and believes it is very out of character for him to go so long without getting in touch with anyone.
Chandra and Tuli were present at the conference, and issued a desperate plea for members of the public to help them find Minod.
