Fears for vulnerable Plymouth dad who has gone missing in Addis Ababa


There are fears for the safety of a vulnerable Plymouth man who has not been seen for over a week – and could be in Ethiopia.

Paul Povey, 58, was supposed to go for an appointment at Derriford Hospital last Tuesday, but staff have said he didn't turn up.

It is not unusual for Paul, who lives in Honicknowle, to leave the city unannounced, his family say, but they would usually be contacted by him to keep them informed of his whereabouts.

His aunt, Christine Horton, believes Paul, who has a history of mental health problems, was planning to visit a woman said to be his partner in Addis Ababa.

Paul has used the money saved to pay his household bills to buy a flight over there, and although his family have been paying the bills for him in his absence, they say he has no money to return – even if he wanted to.
