Police Scotland officers are appealing for help to trace a man who was last seen more than a week ago. Anthony McCallum has been reported missing from his home in Bishopton.

He was last seen around 10am on Friday, April 26, at Glasgow Central Train Station, 13 miles from his home in the Renfrewshire town. He is believed to have headed to Edinburgh.

The pensioner is described as being around 6ft 1ins tall, white, with dark brown hair which is greying at the sides. The 69-year-old is also believed to be in possession of a green rucksack.

Inspector Allan O’Hare said: "We have reason to believe Tony has boarded a train and made his way to the Edinburgh area where he has checked into a city centre hotel before leaving on the 27 April.

"If anyone was in the area around this time and recognises the man in these images, albeit the photo was taken some time ago, we would ask that they contact police as soon as possible.

"There is concern for the safety and wellbeing of Tony and I am asking for the public’s assistance in helping us to trace him. If you have any information that could assist with our investigation, please get in touch"

Anyone with information on Tony's whereabouts should contact Police Scotland by calling 101 and quoting incident number 4120 of May 3, 2024.
