Police Fear For ‘Vulnerable’ Missing Man

Last updated Sun 10 Jun 2012

Police in Wiltshire say they’re becoming increasingly concerned about a 66 year-old man who has gone missing from his home in Tisbury.
Thomas Rickett was last seen by a carer at his sheltered accommodation at around 5.40pm on Thursday.
Mr Rickett needs medication which he does not have with him and police say he could become disorientated and confused.
He does not have a car and so officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him on a bus or train in Tisbury or further afield.
Anyone with information is being asked to call Wiltshire Police on 101.

The BULLDOG Estate Advice – Free Mobile Security


There many free ways you can protect your mobile phone from viruses and malware. I don’t care if the guy you brought your phone from says you don’t need it. He likely doesn’t know you need it because he is more interested in selling you the phone. No scare tactics involved here, it’s just a smart thing to have. That is unless you like getting charge for premium SMS messages you didn’t send or want your Smartphone to end up as someone else’s bot… I personally use the free version of Lookout and have used it for a long time, but I make no claims of it being the best. Do some research on your own and choose the one you like the best.
