Concern growing for 'missing' 75-year-old homeless man found in Liverpool doorway

Concern is growing for a 75-year-old homeless man said to have gone missing after being taken off the streets of Liverpool.

The man, named Bob, was found in a city centre doorway on Thursday by well-known former homeless man Brian Phillips.

Generous Brian invited him to stay at his flat, telling the ECHO he did so because: "It's just what you do."

He said: "He was freezing, sleeping in a doorway. We were taking food around and, I know Bob anyway, so I took him back to mine to stay for the night."

Brian knew Bob after previously meeting him through the Cotton Street homeless project .

After taking him in, Brian learned Bob had been missing from a supported accommodation complex in Chester.
