Police ‘increasingly concerned’ for welfare of missing man

Police are appealing for information after the disappearance of a 33-year-old man.

John Muir was reported missing from Musselburgh, East Lothian, having last been in contact with his family at around 10.40pm on Thursday January 31.

Mr Muir is white, 6ft 2in, of stocky build and has dark hair with some grey. It is cropped at the back and sides and is longer on top.

Following a social media appeal, a member of the public reported seeing a man matching John’s description at Vogrie Country Park in Midlothian at around 3.50pm on Saturday February 2.

The man was near the public car park walking in the direction of Vogrie House and was described as wearing a grey hooded top.

Police said Mr Muir may be wearing dark training shoes and blue jeans, with a dark hooded top with “Amsterdam” and an image of a bicycle printed on the front.

Inspector Jim Langsdale said: “As time passes we are becoming increasingly concerned for John’s welfare.

“We are asking anyone who believes they may have seen John either in Vogrie Country Park or elsewhere, or may have any information that could assist with our enquiries, to please contact Police Scotland on 101 as soon as possible quoting reference 3037 of 1 February”
