Police are appealing to locate a man missing for more than a week.

Tafadzwa Makaka, 20, was reported missing to West Midlands Police on Wednesday, 8 March 2017.

He was expected to travel home to Birmingham on that day by coach but did not arrive back.

On that day, he was seen at Westminster Library, SW1 and spoke to staff. Tafadzwa is also known to have been in Brighton the day before.

His mother and officers are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Tafadzwa has mental health problems, and it is believed that he may not have been taking his medication.

He is described as a black male, around 5ft 7in tall, and of slim build.

Tafadzwa has short black hair, and he was wearing a dark-coloured long-sleeve top, hospital scrub-type trousers and black and white Nike trainers. He may also be wearing or carrying a turquoise-coloured hospital blanket.

If you have seen Tafadzwa or have any information that could help officers locate him, call Westminster Police Missing Persons Unit on 101, or Missing People on 116000.
