Police appeal to the public to trace missing Samuel Townsley


Officers at Irvine are seeking the assistance of the public to trace 28 year-old Samuel Townsley.


Samuel Townsley was last seen by in Paisley on Monday 17 October 2016, and he was reported missing to police on Thursday 26 January 2017.

He is described as white, around 5ft 3 inches in height and of stocky build with very short brown hair.


Inspector Christine Boyd of Irvine Police Office said: "Enquiries are underway to try and locate Mr Townsley. It is not unusual for him to go off by himself for weeks at a time and not maintain contact with his family or friends.

"His family has contacted police as they haven't heard from him since October, and are becoming increasingly concerned for his safety and wellbeing. He has no fixed address and 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 Police Scotland through 101.
