Missing: Alexander McMillan hasn't been seen for two weeks.

Police in Kilsyth are continuing their efforts to trace a man who disappeared two weeks ago.

Officers have been speaking to locals in an effort to trace 46-year-old Alexander McMillan, who was last seen on CCTV around midnight on Monday, April 25 into Tuesday April 26, on Manse Road, near Howe Road, Kilsyth.

A total of seven pedestrians and 11 drivers have been stopped by officers in the town between 11.30pm on Monday and 1.30am on Tuesday of this week.

When Mr McMillan went missing he was wearing a navy hooded jumper, a baseball cap, grey trousers or jogging bottoms and dark coloured Adidas Gazelle trainers. 

He was carrying two rucksacks – one white and grey with a Timberland logo and the other blue, white and grey striped. He was also carrying a fishing rod in a carry case.

As well as speaking to those who may have seen him in the area at the time he was last seen, officers are also appealing to anyone who may have dashcam footage of the area at that time to come forward.

Inspector Susan Rae of Cumbernauld Police Station said: “Alexander’s family are extremely worried about him. They want to make sure he is safe and well and urge him to get in touch if he sees this appeal.

“It’s now been two weeks since Alexander was last seen and it’s not like him not to be in contact with friends or family for this length of time.

“Extensive searches and enquiries continue in the Kilsyth area and I would like to thank the public for their support and assistance with our enquiries.

“Anyone who thinks they may have seen Alexander or has dashcam footage of the area around Manse Road from the time he was last seen is urged to contact police on 101 quoting reference 1579 of 27 April, 2022.”
