Police appealing to find missing man from Ayr

Police are appealing for the assistance of the public in an effort to trace Matthew Wainwright (32) who is missing from Ayrshire.

Matthew, from James Campbell Road, Ayr, was last seen leaving his home on Monday 22 July 2019. He is described as white, 6 ft 2 in height, has a large athletic build, short brown hair and green eyes. It is not known what he was wearing at the time.

Chief Inspector Brian Anderson, Ayr Police Office, said:

“Matthew works away from home and left to head to the north of England on Monday 22 July 2019.

“He was due to come home on Friday 26 July but didn’t come back and so far, other than one or two calls to his family, and his works vehicle, a white coloured Ford Transit, registration YM19TSX, being spotted in Lancashire, West Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Northumbria areas, there has been no further contact from him.

“Normally whilst working away he is in regular contact with family so to not be in contact now for nearly two weeks is concerning.

“I would ask Matthew or anyone who knows where he is to contact police. He has family in Leeds and we have been in contact with them, as well as the relevant forces in England, but no one has seen or heard from him.

“Any information as to his whereabouts can be passed to officers at Ayr Police Office via 101. Please quote reference number 4641 of the Monday 29 July when calling.

“We’d also ask Matthew himself to get in touch. His safety and well-being is paramount for us and we want to know he is ok and to get him back home.”
