Appeal for information on whereabouts of missing Bellshill man James Clacher last seen 11 days ago Police Scotland

The search continues for a missing hiker from North Lanarkshire who disappeared 11 days ago.

The last sighting of Bellshill man James Clacher was in Airdrie at around 4pm on Monday, May 30.

The 53-year-old has not been in contact with any friends or family since that day and Police Scotland say that is completely “out of character” for him.

Concern over his welfare is continuing to grow as a result and anyone with any information on his potential whereabouts have been urged to get in touch.

Mr Clacher’s Suzuki Swift car was traced at the Loch Long car park in Arrochar, Argyll and officers say he may also have travelled through the Tyndrum area.

On Tuesday, a week on from when the disappearance was reported, police spoke to 90 people in the Arrochar and Tyndrum areas as searches for him continue.

He is described as being bald and around 5ft6 with an athletic build.

When he was last seen he was wearing grey cargo style trousers with a black jacket or poncho, a black hat and black trainers.

Members of the public are asked not to approach Mr Clacher but to call police on 101.
