Police say they’re growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing sailor from the town.

61-year-old Geoffrey Cole from Greenhill was last seen in Weymouth Bay in his boat “Palamina” around 7am on Saturday morning – when he set off to sail to Swanage to meet friends.

At around 6.30am on Monday 23 September 2013, his boat was located by French coastguards washed ashore in the area of Griz Nez, situated near Calais and Boulogne.

Inspector Bob Jacobs, of Dorset Police, said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Geoffrey and are anxious to establish his whereabouts.

“His family are desperate for him to return to them safe and well.

“I am appealing for anyone with any information to Geoffrey’s whereabouts to get in touch at the earliest opportunity.”

Anyone with any information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 23:159.
