A NEW Cumnock man has been missing for five days leaving his family 'very concerned'.

Ian Cameron left his home in Milray Avenue on the evening of Tuesday, October 6, just before midnight to head to work.

He got into his car, a sliver Seat Leon, registration number, YE06 HDX. However, he did not arrive at work. 

On Thursday, October 8, his employer contacted his family to advise them Ian had not been at work for several days. On Friday, October 9, Ian's worried family contacted police to report him missing. 

Police have launched an appeal to help trace Ian. 

Ian is white, around 5ft 4/ 5 in height, with a medium build, long grey/white hair, often worn in a ponytail. When last seen, he was wearing a beige coloured polo shirt, navy blue combat trousers, a navy blue fleece and black shoes.

Officers have been able to trace a CCTV sighting on Ian around midnight, carrying a large overnight bag.

His car has also been spotted in the Luncarty area north of Perth around 5am on Wednesday, October 7. 

There have been no further sightings of Ian or his vehicle since then.

Sergeant Paul Tomkinson said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen Ian or his car to contact us. His family is very concerned and just want to know he is safe and well. We know his vehicle was in the Luncarty area and we are checking for any other sightings, however, at this stage, we have been unable to confirm if Ian left that area to travel further north or east or if he has stayed in the location. If anyone has any information or knowledge as to Ian’s whereabouts, please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 3746 of Friday, October 9 2020.
