Search underway for teenage boy missing for two days

A major search is underway for a missing teenager who was last seen on Saturday night.

Evan Stewart, from Stranraer, has now been missing for two days and concern over his welfare is growing.

The 18-year-old, described as being around 5ft10 tall with short brown hair, was last seen on Foundry Lane at around midnight between Saturday and Sunday.

When last seen he was wearing a white hooded top, grey trousers and blue trainers. He was wearing glasses with silver frames.

Police say it is out of character for Evan not to be in touch with family or friends for this length of time and have issued a plea for him to let them know he is safe.

Sergeant Stephen Judge of Stranraer Police Station said: “It is out of character for Evan to be out of contact with his family and friends for so long and as time passes we are growing increasing concerned.

“I would urge anyone who may have seen him or who has information at all about his whereabouts to let us know as soon as possible.

“If Evan himself sees this then please get in touch to let us know you are okay.”
