Missing Evan Reid's family plea for help after 'much loved' dad last seen almost a week ago

The family of missing Evan Reid have issued a statement calling for help as the 'much loved' 31-year-old remains missing almost a week after he was last seen in Paisley.

Police have also released CCTV images of the last sighting of the dad, from Irvine, in North Ayrshire, showing the moment he was walking along Inchinnan Road at around 10.06pm.

An urgent search was launched after he was last seen getting off a train in Paisley after a night out in Glasgow on Saturday, March 25.

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

Issuing a plea for help, Evan's family said: “Evan is a much loved member of our family and we plead for anyone with information to please speak to the police.

"We would like to say thank you to the local communities and police in Paisley for their support and help to find Evan."

Officers believe Inchinnan Road was busy with cars and, despite the hour, there were pedestrians in the area who may hold key information to finding out what happened to Evan before he was reported missing.

Police are appealing to anyone who was in the Inchinnan Road area near to the River Cart at this time, either on foot, such as dog walkers, or in a vehicle, to come forward.

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

Community Policing Inspector Laura Hamill is leading on the enquiry and she said: “We are continuing our efforts to trace Evan Reid and would urge anyone who may have seen him on the night in question or thereafter to come forward.

“No matter how small you think the information is, it could be the vital piece we need to find out what happened to Evan.

“I’d also like to ask anyone who has premises with a camera or vehicles with dashcams that are in the surrounding area to check for signs of Evan, if we have not already made contact with you.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Police Scotland by calling 101, quoting incident number 4112 of Saturday, 25 March, 2023.
