Fresh CCTV image released in search of missing Irvine father Evan Reid last seen in Paisley Police Scotland

A fresh CCTV image has been released in the search for a man from Irvine who has been missing for almost a week.

Evan Reid, 31, was last seen on CCTV footage in the Inchinnan Road area of Paisley, at around 10.06pm on Saturday, March 25.

Officers believe the road was busy with cars and, despite the hour, there were pedestrians in the area who may hold key information to finding out what happened to Evan before he was reported missing.

They are appealing to anyone who was in the Inchinnan Road area near to the River Cart at this time, either on foot, such as dog walkers, or in a vehicle, to come forward.

Mr Reid is described as being around 5ft 8in in height and of slim build.

When last seen he was wearing a khaki green jumper, a black body warmer, dark blue jeans and grey trainers.

Evan Reid was last seen on CCTV in the Inchinnan Road area of Paisley.

Evan’s family released a statement through Police Scotland, saying: “We would like to say thank you to the local communities and police in Paisley for their support and help to find Evan.

“Evan is a much loved member of our family and we plead for anyone with information to please speak to the police.”

Community Policing Inspector Laura Hamill is leading on the enquiry and she said: “We are continuing our efforts to trace Evan Reid and would urge anyone who may have seen him on the night in question or thereafter to come forward.

“No matter how small you think the information is, it could be the vital piece we need to find out what happened to Evan.

“I’d also like to ask anyone who has premises with a camera or vehicles with dashcams that are in the surrounding area to check for signs of Evan, if we have not already made contact with you.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Police Scotland by calling 101, quoting incident number 4112 of Saturday, March 25.
