Tonight there are growing concerns for Mr Gallier, at 19:00 Bob Gallier walked out of Hereford hospital with no phone, possibly no wallet. He is in a distressed mental state.

If anyone knows of his whereabouts or has seen him this evening please contact Hereford Police.

Bob Gallier speaking last week said he is “cut to pieces” following a court order recently that his business has to close.

Mr Gallier has been forced to sell his property in Berrington Street as well as the vast stock of bikes and accessories as part of a divorce settlement.

Mr Gallier said the decision has caused him great distress. Last weekend he was treated in Hereford County Hospital’s trauma unit, and Mr Gallier admitted he had been on “suicide watch”.

He opened his motorbike shop in Bastion Mews in 1968 before moving to East Street and finally to the current location in Berrington Street in 1976.

Your Herefordshire would not post this info because his disappearance although reported was not on the police website/Facebook page so to them he was not 'officially missing'.
 

We are friends with the guys over at YH and we understand their reasons.

We were approached directly and a request was made to us to make an appeal via our portal, which we did. The good news that everyone was hoping for has been realised because Bob Gallier has now been found safe and well, which was the only immediate concern here.

Poor chap  I hope he is given the help and privacy now  There is far too much that should not be published put in the press nowadays.    

Inc the Hereford Times story recently which was his doing . I have known Bob for years but he should not have done it.

I bought my first proper bike from Bob back in 1980, a Kawasaki Z650. In the following years and many road and road racing bikes later I would still return to his shop for parts as it was a treasure trove and I always found just what I was looking for. Bob and the shop are Hereford icons and it would be a great shame to see them gone, best of luck to him from down under.
