The hunt for a pensioner from South Yorkshire now missing for more than two days has intensified as more details of his last known movements emerged.

Barry Jones, from Rotherham, was reported missing on Tuesday (February 28) and police say they are increasingly worried about the 77-year-old's safety and wellbeing.

Following an initial appeal, it has emerged Barry boarded an X5 bus in Aston, headed towards Sheffield, that morning, at around 11.05am.

He is then thought to have boarded the no 120 bus to Fulwood at around 12.12pm.

CCTV footage later shows him getting on another X5 at Sheffield city centre bus station, at around 1.10pm, this time headed for Dinnington.

He is believed to have got off that bus at the Woodhouse Mill stop around 10 minutes later, which is the last known sighting.

Officers have urged anyone who was on any of these buses at those times, or who believes they may have seen Barry, to get in touch.

Barry was last seen wearing blue jeans, a thermal vest and a green coat with a leather collar. He is about 5ft 8ins tall, of a slim build and has a shaved head.

Anyone who thinks they can help is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 628 of February 28.
