Police have launched a new appeal for information on sightings of a missing pensioner who disappeared from Bellshill five days ago.

Edward McDonald, 75, was last seen on Carnbroe Road in North Lanarkshire town around 10am last Monday, November 29th.

Officers believe there may have been other sightings Tuesday and Wednesday on a bike path near nearby Carrick Place.

Edward is described as a 5 foot 8in tall, medium build, with short gray and white hair and beard.

His family is said to be “extremely concerned” about his disappearance, which they say is out of character for the pensioner.

They are also worried that he may not have regular medicine with him.

He was wearing a black jacket, dark khaki fleece, dark pants, dark shoes and a khaki ship or baseball cap.

Appeals have been issued by both North Lanarkshire and Greater Glasgow police divisions in an attempt to track down Edward’s last moves as he is known for visiting Glasgow’s city center.

Police have asked anyone who may have been driving in the area since Monday to review dashcam footage because of a chance they may have caught him on camera.

Police Chief Emma Smith of the Motherwell Police Office said: “Edward’s family has not had contact with him since Monday, which is unusual and they are extremely concerned about him.

“We ask people who were driving in the Shirrel / Hattonrigg area of ​​Bellshill to review dashcam footage from Monday, November 29, and any observations made by Edward.

“We also ask anyone who has seen Edward since Monday, or if Edward is reading this himself, please contact us via 101 indicating event reference number 3014 of December 2. 21.”
