Specialist officers join search for ‘much loved son’ missing for almost a month from Montrose Police Scotland

Residents in Montrose are being asked to check their private CCTV or doorbell footage as the search for a missing man continues almost one month on from his disappearance.

Kevin Campbell was visiting the area from Stonehaven when was last seen on Saturday, October 1 at around 6.40pm in Paton’s Lane, Montrose.

The 29-year-old is described as white, 5ft 8in and of medium build, with short brown hair and a beard.

When he was last seen he was wearing a black short-sleeved T-shirt, black trousers and black trainers.

Specialist search officers have been deployed as police increase resources in a bid to trace Mr Campbell.

There is increasing concern for his welfare as he has not been in contact with friends or family since he was last seen at the beginning of the month.

Police have carried out extensive enquiries which have included checking CCTV and engaging with local bus and taxi companies, however no information on Mr Campbell’s whereabouts has been found.

Chief Inspector Leanne Blacklaw, local area commander, said: “Additional officers, including specialist search officers, will be in and around the Montrose area today and in the following days carrying out further searches for Mr Campbell.

“It’s been nearly a month since he was last seen or heard from, and as time goes by, our concern for his welfare increases.

“We know that Kevin came through to Montrose to visit friends but they have not had any contact from him since the beginning of the month. He’s close to his family and usually in touch daily, but this has not happened since last seen.

“We have been checking CCTV, making enquiries with various agencies and local bus and taxi companies, but so far no one has any information that will help us find him.

“If you live around this area of Montrose and have any doorbell or CCTV footage covering the road, then please get in touch with police.  We can make arrangements to view any footage you may have.

“At the end of the day, Kevin is a much-loved son, and his family just want him home safely.  If you can help with any information, then please get in touch via 101, quoting reference number 1979 of Wednesday, October 5, 2022.

“We’d also appeal to Kevin himself to return home or get in touch with family. Everyone wants to make sure he is safe and well.”
