Scots pensioner who vanished from home found safe five days on

A pensioner who went missing from his home in Angus has been found safe five days on.

Stewart Downie, 73, was reported missing from Kirriemuir on April 13 and was last seen at around 2.45pm that day on the B951 near the Lintrathen Loch, close to the junction which leads to Glenisla, Kirriemuir and Ballintore.

Officers had urging anyone with any information to contact Police Scotland. On Tuesday afternoon, they confirmed he had been found safe and well.

A post on social media from the force read: "Stewart Downie, 73, who had been missing from Kirriemuir, Angus, since Thursday, 13 April 2023, has been traced. Thank you to everyone who shared our appeals."

Local Inspector David Gibson had asked locals in the area to check their gardens.

He said: “Stewart’s family are understandably concerned for his welfare. I am appealing for anyone who may have seen him, including in the area of Lintrathen Loch to come forward.

“I would also appeal to motorists who may have been driving in the area around that time and may have dashcam footage.

“Also, can householders please check the gardens, sheds, outbuildings and communal areas in case Stewart has sought shelter.”
