‘Increasing concern’ for man, 28, missing for more than a month

The police today turned to the public amid mounting concerns for a Merseyside man who vanished at the start of December.

Officers also released a picture of Uyapo Hayunga-Macha – the Wirral man at the centre of the missing person appeal.

Merseyside Police said they are “becoming increasingly concerned” over the whereabouts of the 28-year-old, also known as Theodore.

Theodore, from Birkenhead, was last seen on Beckwith Street at 5am on Friday, December 4.

Merseyside Police described him as 5ft 11in tall, of slim build, with short shaven black hair and brown eyes.

When last seen he was wearing an orange beanie hat, brown North Face coat and carrying a black rucksack.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “Theodore speaks with a Liverpool/African accent, he is originally from Botswana, and is known to frequent Liverpool City centre.”
