Officers are continuing their enquiries as they try to locate 28 year old Samuel Townsley who was reported to missing to police on Thursday 26 January 2017.

Samuel was last seen in Paisley on Monday 17 October 2016. He is described as white, around 5ft 3 inches in height and of stocky build with very short brown hair.

Officers are currently checking a possible sighting of Samuel in Allison Street, Govanhill possibly a week to ten days before Christmas.

Officers are also reviewing CCTV images for any additional information as to where Samuel may have gone.

Inspector Jim McMillan of Irvine Police Office said:

"We continue to carry out enquiries to try and locate Samuel. His family is understandably concerned for him. Although, he does go off by himself for weeks at a time and isn’t always in contact with his family, it’s not normally for this length of time. Samuel doesn’t have a fixed address, however he is known to travel to Renfrewshire, Dunbartonshire, Lanarkshire, Glasgow City Centre and the Grangemouth and Falkirk areas.

"We are appealing to anyone with information on Samuel's whereabouts to contact us, and we would also appeal to Samuel himself to make contact with police to let us know he is safe and well."

Anyone with information should contact Irvine Police Office via 101.
