POLICE are searching for a man with dementia who has been missing overnight in wintry conditions.
Allan Burns, 71, was last seen at around 3.15pm on Friday on the cycle path at Kilbarchan, heading towards Lochwinnoch in Renfrewshire.
He was reported missing by family when he did not return home.
Police are urging anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact them.
Sergeant Kevin Carter at Renfrew Police Office said: “Allan, who has not returned home, has dementia, is without his medication and as the weather gets colder our concern increases. It is imperative that we find him quickly.
“He goes walking along the cycle path regularly and knows the Kilbarchan, Lochwinnoch and Castle Semple areas well.
“We would ask anyone who uses this cycle path to look out for him, or to think back – do you remember seeing someone matching his description yesterday?
“We would also ask Allan himself to get in touch with police or his family to let us know you are OK.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 4197 of Friday January 18.
