Increasing concern for man last seen in early hours near Musselburgh racecourse two weeks ago Police Scotland

Concern is growing for a man last seen walking alone in the early hours of the morning two weeks ago.

Daniel Fraser, from the Drylaw area of Edinburgh, was last seen at around 1.37am on Sunday, January 7 outside the Old Golf Course reception building, Stables Pavilion, near the racecourse in Musselburgh.

Extensive enquiries, including reviewing CCTV, are ongoing to trace the 35-year-old.

On the evening of Saturday, January 20, officers were out and about in Musselburgh asking the public if they have seen Daniel or if they know where he might be. 

They were asked to think back in case they remember seeing him in the area two weeks ago, when he was last seen.

Daniel is described as white, around 5ft 8in tall, of slim build with short light brown hair. 

When last seen he was wearing a grey long-sleeved jumper with a white t-shirt underneath, dark-coloured jeans and black trainers with blue detailing.

Chief inspector Neil Wilson said: “It has been two weeks since Daniel was last seen and we are becoming increasingly concerned. It is completely out of character for him not to keep in contact with his family and friends and this is a very upsetting time for them.

“Extensive searches and enquiries are continuing to trace him and a team of local officers have been assisted by specialist resources, including the Force helicopter, search teams and police dogs, in our efforts to find Daniel as soon as possible.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the Musselburgh area, particularly near the Old Golf Course building to think back. Please get in touch if you think you may have seen anyone matching Daniel’s description.

“In addition, if you have private CCTV or dash-cam footage that could assist with our enquiries to find where he went then let us know. Any information, no matter how small, could help our enquiry.

“I urge anyone with information to contact 101 quoting incident number 3723 of January 11.”
