AN ELDERLY holidaymaker has gone missing while on vacation in Bayahibe. 
Englishman John Packer, 78, was last seen on Friday at about 16:00 at the Dreams La Romana Resort and Spa with wife Lyn. 
He was wearing a pair of dark blue swimming shorts, with no shirt or shoes. 
His son Jo was due to arrive in the Dominican Republic Saturday for a holiday with John, Lyn and their grandchildren.
His family are appealing for information. 
Son James said: “We are desperately worried about dad. If anyone has seen John at any point since Friday please get in touch.”
Please contact the local police urgently if you have seen John.

Is there a media link to this story?  How about a photo of the missing man?


We have gone out to media this morning so hope to have link very soon. 

Is there an email I can send photo in to? As I do not have a place to host online to post URL here. 

Thank you

You can upload photo to tinypic.com then post the link here. 
 

Unfortunately the board won’t let me post a link as I am a new member. Any other ideas or an email I could seb for a moderator to upload appreciated! Thank you

The information has been shared since yesterday on several whatsapp chat groups on the east coast. It's my understanding he might have a bit of alzheimer which would explain wandering off the resort unknowingly.
