CCTV images released as Fife cops grow increasingly concerned for missing man

Police in Fife have released CCTV footage of a missing man who vanished two days ago. Ernest Nicholson, from Cowdenbeath, was last seen in the Turnstone Road area of Dunfermline at around 6.15am on Monday, 13 February.

The 57-year-old was captured leaving a local hotel wearing a green camouflage rucksack. Police are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and are asking anyone who recognises the missing man to get in touch.

Ernest is described as 5ft 8in tall and is bald. He was last seen wearing blue jeans or trousers, a grey jacket with black sleeves, black boots and a grey or black woollen hat.

Sergeant Derek Radcliffe said: “We’re becoming increasingly concerned for Ernest’s welfare as he has not been seen or heard from now for two days. I would appeal to anyone who recognises him or who may have seen someone matching his description in the Fife area, since the early hours of Monday morning, to please come forward.

“I would also appeal to Ernest himself. If you see this appeal, make contact with us.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 0868 of 13 February, 2023.
