Missing: Vincent Barr has not been seen since September 18, 2020.

Police have issued a fresh appeal for information over the disappearance of a man who vanished more than a year ago.

Vincent Barr, who turns 56 on Thursday, has been missing since Friday, September 18, 2020.

Mr Barr – also known as Vinny or Bardo – was last seen crossing Glasgow’s Tradeston Bridge/Squiggly Bridge into the wider Tradeston area at around 9.10pm.

Police said despite “significant” enquiries and searches, he has not been seen or heard from since.

Mr Barr, who is originally from the Milton area but was living in Govan, walks with a slight limp.

He is believed to be around 5ft 6-8in with a medium build, light-brown hair and brown eyes.

Inspector Bob Anderson said: “It is Vincent’s 56th birthday on January 6 and there is nothing more we would want than for him to be found and reunited with his family.

“Unfortunately, despite significant enquiries and searches, he has not been seen or heard from since he was last seen in Tradeston nor the other areas he frequents, such as Glasgow City Centre, Saracen, Possil and the west end of Glasgow.

“His family are understandably devastated about him being missing and not knowing where he is; they just want him home.

“I would again urge anyone who has possibly seen Vincent, or who has any knowledge of where he might be, to please get in touch with us.”
