Mr Henshaw's condition may make him appear as if he is drunk
A renewed search will take place this weekend for a walker who has gone missing in the Peak District.

Peter Henshaw, 43, from Lundwood in Barnsley was last seen on Tuesday morning near Torside reservoir.

Police from South Yorkshire and Derbyshire will be joined by mountain rescue teams and will be distributing posters with Mr Henshaw's photograph.

Mr Henshaw, who has Huntingdon's disease, was intending to walk to Edale before catching a train home.

Off course

This weekend's search will concentrate on the area around Kinder Scout near where he started his walk.

But there are fears Mr Henshaw may have strayed off course as far as Tintwistle near Glossop.

As well as putting up posters, officers will be in Peak District car parks asking walkers to watch our for any signs of the missing man.

Because of his medical condition, Mr Henshaw walks with an unusual gait which sometimes gives the appearance of someone who is drunk.
