Police search for man walking behind Paresh Patel before he disappeared

Police searching for a missing 48-year-old man have released CCTV images of a man they believe may be able to help with the investigation.

Paresh Patel was last seen just after 9pm on Saturday 10 November in the Belgrave Road area of Leicester.

During their investigations, officers have found CCTV that shows a man believed to be Paresh walking on Abbey Park Road. He is seen walking over the first bridge, on the opposite side of the road to the park, heading towards Abbey Lane.

The footage also shows a slim male (pictured above) walking a short distance behind Paresh on this journey before they then go separate ways.

Detective Inspector Tony Yarwood said: “Do you recognise the man pictured, or is that you?

“I believe that he may have seen where Paresh went to and would like to speak to him as part of my investigation.”

“If you know the man pictured, then please ask him to get in touch.”
