By Jessica Anstice

Police are searching for a man who went missing while walking from Dandenong to his home in Pakenham on Tuesday.

David Margetts has not been in touch with his family or friends since 2pm on 20 May.

Police have been told the 65-year-old left his work in Dandenong and walked to a Pakenham address.

Police and family have concerns for Mr Margetts’ welfare as it is out of character.

He is described as Caucasian, 180cm tall with white hair.

He was last seen wearing a grey jumper, white t-shirt, dark coloured shorts and white runners.

Police have released an image of Mr Margetts in the hope someone recognises him and knows of his current whereabouts.
