Police have said they are concerned for the welfare of a missing pensioner who disappeared a week ago from an Inverclyde pub.
Patrick Clark, 70, was last seen at Lyle’s pub on Shore Street, Gourock, around 12.10am on January 31.
Officers said extensive searches had been carried out in the week that Mr Clark has been missing, but to no avail.
“Local officers, led by specialist search advisors have been assisted by resources including the air support unit. Despite these efforts and previous appeals, we have yet to trace him,” Sergeant Paul MacPherson said.
They are continuing to speak with people who know Mr Clark and live locally, as well as looking at CCTV footage from surroundings areas for information on where he went after the pub.
Sgt MacPherson continued: “This is a very upsetting time for his family as it is completely out of character for him to go missing and not keep in contact with them.
“Patrick is in poor health and we are all extremely concerned for his safety and wellbeing.”
He added that Mr Clark usually stays local to the Gourock area, however he recently visited West Kilbride.
Anyone who may have seen Mr Clark since last Tuesday, or has any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Police Scotland at 101 with reference number 3371 of January 31.
