1D star Louis Tomlinson joins appeal for help to find missing man


One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has made a public plea for help in reuniting a missing grandfather with his family.

The 24-year-old singer tweeted an appeal for information on the whereabouts of Nigel Knights, 63, who vanished on May 9.

Tomlinson told his 22 million followers: "Really want to help this family get reunited with Nigel. Can we all help? Please share!!"

Mr Knights, from the Rochester area of Kent, went missing after shopping with his family at a Morrisons store in Strood.

He was said to have no cash, no phone, no keys and no coat. Posters have been pasted around the Medway towns in the hope of finding him.

A vigil will take place at St Francis Church in Strood on Monday where a minute's silence will be held at 8pm to mark the time of his disappearance.

Mr Knights is described as white, around 5ft 7in tall, of thin build and has dark greying hair. He was wearing a mauve sweatshirt and navy tracksuit bottoms with white stripes when he was last seen.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kent Police on 101.
