Police have confirmed that a man matching the description of Evan Reid is not the missing dad who has not been seen for nearly a week.

Evan was travelling home to Irvine when he appeared agitated and disembarked at Paisley Gilmour Street Station and CCTV images were earlier released.

Evan's partner Nicole Murray, who shares a three-year old daughter with him, previously said he texted her that "something dodgy was happening" shortly before he went missing.

She said: "He was in Glasgow on a night out. He text me to say he was getting the train home.

"He said to me [in a text] there was something happening, something dodgy was happening. I didn't know then that he was on the train already.

"We are waiting on CCTV from inside the train to see if that shows anything."

Evan is described as being around 5ft 8in in height and of slim build. When last seen he was wearing a khaki green jumper, a black body warmer, dark blue jeans and grey trainers.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting reference 4112 of Saturday, 25 March, 2023.
