Officers searching for missing 76-year-old Peter Kerevan are continuing to appeal for information on his whereabouts 17 days after the last confirmed sighting.

“Many members of the public from the local community and further afield have helped join the search, and the Merseyside Search and Rescue Service continue to put a huge effort into the search for Peter.
“I would ask anyone who has been in the Maghull or Aintree areas since Peter’s disappearance to please cast your minds back and try and consider if you may have seen Peter. Every single sighting has been and will be followed up.
“When last seen, Peter was wearing a short-sleeved dark blue shirt and carrying a dark-coloured cardigan. He was also reportedly wearing blue jeans and brown shoes.
“I would also like to remind people to remain safe when they are out searching for Peter. The response from the public has been remarkable and we greatly appreciate your help, but please take care if you are out in dangerous areas and make sure you have the correct equipment or seek help from our specially trained Matrix officers.”
Peter is described as white, around 6ft tall, of slim build with short grey hair and had stubble when last seen and anyone who believes they may have seen Peter or someone who resembles his description should call 101, DM @MerPolCC or in an emergency, call 999.
