The search for a missing great-grandfather has entered its second month.

Kevin Judge was last seen at 12.30pm on Monday, April 15, after being dropped off near his Lupset home on Esther Avenue by a taxi.

The 68-year-old has not been seen since.

His daughter Lisa Pool, 45, of Thornes said: “My dad’s disappearance is totally out of character and a complete mystery. Everyone is extremely concerned for him.

“Life is very difficult for the whole family at the moment and the more time goes by the worse it gets.

“There isn’t a second goes by without us thinking and talking about him and his disappearance has saddened everyone deeply. We just want my dad home safe and well.”

Ex-miner Mr Judge is 5ft, 7ins tall, slim and has thinning grey coloured hair that is worn slicked back. He also walks very slowly.

He has four children, five grandchildren and a great-grandchild and was a regular at Bollands Bar and the Talbot and Falcon pubs.

Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

DI Vivien Sergerius-Allick, of Wakefield district safeguarding unit, said: “Kevin has now been missing for some considerable time. I appeal to the public to assist the family and police in this enquiry.

“If you or anyone you know thinks they have seen Kevin, since the afternoon of Monday April 15, 2013, please come forward and speak with the enquiry team.

“Any small piece of information could assist in finding Kevin who is deeply missed by his family.”

Anyone with any information should contact police on 101.
