Appeal to help trace missing 89 year old Ayrshire man


Police Scotland is seeking the assistance of the public in trying to locate a man missing from East Ayrshire since Wednesday 21 December 2016.


Charles Rose, 89, was last seen at the Stewarton Area Centre around 9:30am on Wednesday 21 December 2016 when he sought some advice from a member of staff at the centre. He was reported missing to the police on Friday 23 December 2016.

Charles is described as around 5 ft 10 inches in height, slightly balding with grey hair. He is normally clean shaven and when last seen he was wearing green wellingtons, a green/ brown overcoat, green/brown trousers and carrying a rucksack. He often wears a trilby hat but it's not known if he was wearing a hat when last seen.

He is well known in the Stewarton and Dunlop community as he is a keen walker and photographer and can often be seen out and about taking photos.


Charles is in good health and enjoys travelling around, often taking the train. Officers are linking in with their counterparts in British Transport Police and are checking CCTV footage for any information which could assist their enquiries.

Officers are concerned for the well being of Mr Rose, given his age and the recent weather and they are appealing for anyone who has seen him or has any information as to his whereabouts, to contact them at Kilmarnock Police Office via 101.
