Van Sightings Plea As Police Search For Missing Kings Heath Man


Police are urgently appealing for sightings of a transit van as officers try to trace a Birmingham man who disappeared from his home overnight.

Harbans Agimal is understood to have left his Norton View, Kings Heath, home in the early hours of Thursday morning (June 12) in the blue van – registration H14 BNS – having posted his wallet through the letterbox.

No-one has heard since from the 54-year-old despite officers making extensive enquiries with family, neighbours, hospitals, and people at his place of work.

Police are now asking for sightings of the van – which has a noticeable dent in the front wing – or Mr Agimal himself.

Birmingham South Police Missing People Co-ordinator, PC Steven Carlin, said: “His family say he’s never gone missing like this before so understandably they are worried about his state of mind and desperately want to know he’s OK.

“If anyone believes they may have seen the vehicle I’d urge them to contact me as soon as possible.”

Mr Agimal is described as an Asian male, 5ft 9ins tall, clean shaven, medium build with greying thinning hair and brown eyes; he was last seen wearing a grey T-shirt, black jacket, black jeans and black trainers.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Midlands Police on the 101 number and speak to PC Carlin in Bournville police station.
