Police are appealing for information to help trace a man missing from Kilbarchan since yesterday.

Allan Burns, 71 was last seen around 3.15 pm on Friday 18th January 2019 on the cycle path at Kilbarchan, heading towards Lochwinnoch. He was reported missing by police by family when he did not return home.

Allan is around 5ft 8, of slim build, has short grey hair, green eyes and is clean shaven. When last seen he was wearing a grey tammy hat, a khaki green waterproof jacket with tartan lining, dark blue jeans, grey walking boots and a maroon and grey striped scarf.

Sergeant Kevin Carter, Renfrew Police Office, said: “Allan, who has not returned home, has dementia, is without his medication and as the weather gets colder our concern increases. It is imperative that we find him quickly.

“He goes walking along the cycle path regularly and knows the Kilbarchan, Lochwinnoch and Castle Semple areas well.

“We would ask anyone who uses this cycle path to look out for him, or to think back – do you remember seeing someone matching his description yesterday?

“We would also ask Allan himself to get in touch with Police or his family to let us know you are okay.”

Anyone with any information regarding Allan’s whereabouts should contact Police via telephone number 101.
