Searches for a missing pensioner last seen three days ago are continuing as concerns for his safety grow.
Neil Paton, from Bo’ness, is 82 and police say concerns for his welfare are increasing as efforts to find him are ramped up.
He was last seen at a Shell petrol station at Heartlands in Whitburn Junction 4A of the M8 around 10.50pm on Friday.
Prior to this, there was a sighting of him at a service station on the A89 near Dechmont around 9.15pm.
Mr Paton is described as white, around 5ft 8in tall, of medium build with white/grey hair and a beard.
When he was last seen he was wearing a brown tweed style jacket with elbow patches, a pink shirt and tie, grey trousers and brown shoes. He had on glasses and a hat and was carrying an umbrella and black rucksack.
It is also understood that he put on a light coloured raincoat while he was at the service station on the A89.
Sergeant Lynne Morrison, Whitburn Police Station, said: “I’m appealing to anyone who thinks they may have seen Neil, or someone matching his description, since Friday evening to contact us urgently.
“We now know Neil was seen at the petrol station at Heartlands around 10.50pm but we need help to find out where he went after leaving there. There is a possibility he spoke with the driver of a silver car shortly after this time and we are asking the driver to come forward.
“Anyone with information is urged to contact 101 quoting reference 3651 of October 7, 2023.”
