A PENSIONER who was last seen in the Morningside area this morning is being sought by police amid fears for his safety.
Robert Lee was last spotted at around 9.45am but the 72-year-old has failed to make contact with anyone since that time.
Police are conducting local enquiries to try and establish his whereabouts.
Anyone who believes they can assist officers with their investigation is asked to come forward.
Mr Lee is described as white, 5ft 5in tall whit white hair. He may be wearing a white tartan pattern shirt, dark trousers and shoes.
Inspector Jonathan Elliott said: “Robert is mobile and able to travel around Edinburgh and further by bus so we are keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen him, either on foot, or on public transport since this morning.
“Similarly, anyone with information that can help us trace Robert is also asked to contact police immediately.
“I would also request that Robert make contact with family, friends or police as soon as possible to help us establish if he’s safe and well.”
