Woman wakes to find husband missing

THERE is a desperate search on for an elderly man, after his wife woke in the middle of the night to discover he was missing from the Queensland hotel room they were staying in.

Police and local residents have been combing the streets of Banana, south of Rockhampton, after Bob Twigg, 82, went missing overnight.

Mr Twigg suffers from a medical condition and can become easily confused and disoriented.

He is described as 168cm tall, balding and was last seen wearing blue-striped pyjamas.
