Urgent appeal to trace pensioner missing three days in Edinburgh

Officers have appealed to the public for help to trace a 75-year-old man missing from Edinburgh, after he vanished three days ago.

Peter Coshan was last seen around 10.15pm on Thursday, August 11, at South Learmonth Gardens in the north-west of the capital, police said today.

He is described as a white male, around 5ft10in tall, of an average build, with grey hair in a side parting. He wears glasses and uses a walking stick.

Constable Rachael McIntrye of Drylaw Police Station said: "It is out of character for Peter not to be in contact with his family and friends and they are understandably worried.

"Peter has never been missing before. If anyone has seen Peter or has any information or knowledge of his whereabouts, please contact the police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 1745 of August 12, 2022.
