St Albans: Family organise search for missing Alan Spray
THE family of Alan Spray are organising a search on Sunday to help find the pensioner, who has been missing for almost two weeks.
Alan, who has Alzheimer’s, went missing from Verulam House nursing home, on Verulam Road, on Saturday July 30.
The 73-year-old was last seen on CCTV, at 8.10pm, walking past the Total garage, away from the city centre.
Members of Alan’s family will be meeting at McDonalds car park, on the retail site at the bottom of Holywell Hill, on Sunday, at 11am, to search for him.
Gemma White, partner of Alan’s oldest son Chris, said: “Please ask as many people as you can to come along for whatever time they can; the more people involved, the more ground we can cover and the more chance we have of finding him.

“It’d be great to see as many people there as possible, ever if you can’t make 11am, you could join the search later in the day.”
Police have been conducting an extensive search for Alan, who is from Hatfield, but have scaled down their operation.
