A missing man from Great Lever could be in the West Yorkshire area after getting on a bus in Rochdale.

Officers trying to find 35-year-old Syed Zahir Abbas now know he got on board the 10.30pm bus at Rochdale yesterday evening (Thursday 11 April 2019).

The bus was heading towards Oldham and Ashton so it could be possible that Syed is in the West Yorkshire area.
