Police are appealing for information to help trace an elderly man missing from Ardrossan.

Andrew Luke, 72, was last seen leaving the Princes Street Hostel in Ardrossan around 12.15pm on Saturday, March 10 where he walked onto Glasgow Street.

He did not return to the hostel later in the day which staff say is very out of character.

Andrew is described as 5ft 3, slim build with receding grey hair. When last seen he was wearing a grey tweed jacket, grey trousers, black woollen hat, black gloves and black shoes.

Sergeant Allison McIntyre at Saltcoats said: “Anyone who has seen Andrew since lunchtime on Saturday 10 March 2018 or anyone who knows of his present whereabouts is asked to contact police at Saltcoats immediately via telephone number 101 quoting incident number 4204 of 10 March 2018.

“I also appeal to Andrew to get in touch with either police or the staff at the Hostel to let us know that he is safe and well.”
