Friends of a young man studying acting in Glasgow have appealed for help after he disappeared from his home ten days ago.

Timothy Chiwaula, 23, was last seen by friends in his house on Old Shettleston Road in the city’s east end around midnight on Sunday, October 10.

They said he does not have his phone, wallet or passport.

Fellow students and friends of Timothy’s from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland said they miss and love him and were praying for his return.

“Timmy is funny, he’s always cracking a joke and so full of energy and always caring about the people around him,” one said.

“His smile is more than infectious, you can see instantly how full of life he is,” another who did not want to be identified said.

Timothy was last seen at around 8.45pm on Monday, October 11, on the road he lived on in the Shettleston/Greenfield area.

Friends said the “fiercely talented and resilient” performer was a “sweet” and “kind” person.

It is believed the BA Acting student is on foot and is known to frequent Glasgow city centre.

“We are all thinking so much of Tim, his family and loved ones,” a friend said, “If anybody has seen or heard anything at all about Timothy, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

A spokesperson for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland said: ““We share the concerns of Tim’s family and friends and urge him to get in touch and anyone with information they think might be helpful to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number PS-20211014-0832.”

Timothy is described as 5ft7 with black dreadlocked hair.

He was possibly wearing the jacket as seen in the picture above, but Police Scotland said this could not be confirmed.
