Specialist cops drafted in amid search for missing Scot who vanished two weeks ago

Specialist officers have been drafted in amid the search for a missing Scots man who vanished two weeks ago.

Cops are currently searching land and water in the area where David Wylie disappeared on Thursday, April 6. The last sighting of the 41-year-old was at 00.30am on Hillside Street in Stevenston, Ayrshire, where he is 'well-known' and often seen walking his dog.

David has not been seen or heard from since. Since his disappearance, specialist officers have been carrying out land and water searches while local cops have been stopping pedestrians and motorists in their bid to find his whereabouts.

David is described as 5ft 9in and of a slum build. At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing a blue/white zipper top, black trousers, black t-shirt and a black beanie hat with grey trim.

Two weeks on, officers have re-appealed to members of the public for information on his whereabouts.

Insp Stuart Dougan, Locality Inspector at Saltcoats, said: “Early this morning, exactly two weeks on from the last known place David was seen, we carried out a road check, speaking to drivers and appealing for any further information. During this check, we spoke with almost 20 people, and I would like to thank the public for their continued support of this enquiry.

“Whilst we assess all information from the public, I would continue to appeal to anyone who may have seen David since March 24, and we have not already spoken with you, please get in touch. Specialist and local officers continue to carry out land and water searches close to Hillside Street and surrounding areas, and our inquiries are ongoing.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Police Scotland by calling 101, quoting reference number 2055 of 24 March, 2023.
