Concerns are growing for the welfare of a man last spotted more than 60 miles from his home in Ayrshire.
Lee Martin was last seen in the Thornhill area of Dumfries and Galloway on Monday, August 15 after vanishing from Ardrossan.
The 22-year-old has failed to contact friends and family members since and his disappearance has been described as out of character.
An appeal has now been launched to trace him by “extremely worried” loved ones.
Lee is described as being white, around six feet tall with a slim build, short brown hair and was last seen wearing a blue puffa jacket.
He is also known to frequent the North Ayrshire area, according to Police Scotland.
Chief inspector Gillian Grant of Irvine police station said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned for Lee’s welfare and are asking for the public’s assistance to help trace him.
“Lee’s family are extremely worried about him and just want to know that he is safe and well.
“Although he is from Ardrossan and was last seen in Thornhill, Lee is also known to frequent the wider North Ayrshire area.
“If you think you may have seen him or have any information on his whereabouts, please contact us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police via 101 quoting incident number 2895 of August 18. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be passed on anonymously.
