POLICE are continuing to appeal for information in relation to missing Arran pensioner John Smith. 

Mr Smith, 77, has been missing since Tuesday, May 30 and was last seen by a neighbour near to Machrie Golf Club, Machrie Bay around 6pm on Tuesday and it is believed that he was walking in an easterly direction.

Mr Smith is described as white, 5 ft 4 in height, of slim build, with short grey hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a dark coloured jacket, dark trousers, a woolly hat and brown hiking boots.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Mr Smith is a vulnerable man who has had some health issues recently and is of poor mobility so for him to be away from his home for this length of time is very unusual. He also requires to take daily medication which we don’t believe he has with him.”
