Paisley locals asked to check sheds and outbuildings for missing man from Castlemilk Police Scotland

Members of the public have been asked to check their sheds and outbuildings for a man who has been missing for nearly a week.

Barry McCullagh, from Castlemilk, was last seen on Corsebar Road in Paisley, near the Royal Alexandra Hospital, at around 5.20pm on October 5.

The 40-year-old is described as white, 5ft 9in tall, with a medium build and short black hair.

He was wearing black and navy jogging bottoms, a black soft shell jacket, and grey and white trainers.

Police are now asking locals in Paisley to check their outbuildings as they do not believe Mr McCullagh would have travelled far.

The force said it is out of character for him not to contact family or friends and are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. 

Sergeant Will Thomson said: “Enquiries are ongoing to trace Barry and we are continuing to appeal to the public for assistance.

“We do not believe Barry will have travelled far and would urge people who live in the area to check outbuildings and sheds.

“A large police presence will remain in the area as searches continue.

“Anyone with any information on Barry’s whereabouts is asked to contact 101 quoting reference 3910 of October 5.”
