Police continue to search for missing St Helens man John Thomas Norrish.
The 52-year-old has an acquired brain injury and is described as being about 174 centimetres tall with a slim build, fair complexion, and has a long and pointed brown beard.
He walks with a pronounced limp.
Mr Norrish’s sister Tammy Williams said her family had made several inquiries in the St Helens area.
“The locals have been amazing, they’ve all said they’re keeping an eye out,” she said.
Tasmania Police Acting Inspector Ben Kromkamp said cases like Mr Norrish’s were complex because there was no specific search area at this stage.
“We are continuing to search around the area and as a result of our investigations, there has been a confirmed sighting of Mr Norrish since he was reported missing,” he said.
The last confirmed sighting of Mr Norrish was Wednesday 28 November, where he was seen in Quayle Street St Helens.
“We can understand that it may be frustrating for all concerned, however we are continuing to act on all information we receive from both his family and members of the community,” Acting Inspector Kromkamp said.
Anyone with information about Mr Norrish’s whereabouts should call Tasmania Police on 131 444, or anonymously call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
