Police are asking for the public’s help to locate two missing people in the ACT:  13-year-old Ebony Scott and 76-year-old man Lawrence Richens.

Ebony Scott last contacted her family on Thursday last week (1 November).

Ebony is described as Caucasian in appearance, slim build, blue eyes, brown hair and about 169cm (5’5”) tall.

Police are also searching for Lawrence Richens, who suffers from dementia and can easily get disorientated. He was last seen on Saturday (3 November) around 10:30 pm in Wanniassa, when he was driving home and became disorientated.

At 1:30 am on Sunday (4 November), he called a family member stating he was not at home and thought he was in Civic.

Around 2:15 pm, he called his family again stating his 2005 blue Toyota Echo registration YEY15Z ran out of fuel. He said he would park under a tree and stay with the car.

Police believe he may be in the Ainslie area and be in or near his car.

Police are concerned for Lawrence’s welfare and said he suffers from blood clots in his legs and cannot walk far.

Anyone who has seen Ebony or Lawrence or anybody who has any information about their whereabouts is urged to contact ACT Policing on 131 444.
