The family of a man who went missing from his home on the Isle of Arran four years ago are still hopeful of getting answers in order to have for some closure.

Four years on from the disappearance, the family of John Smith are hoping that any information can provide some respite from the torture they have endured over the since 2017.

John, from Machrie, was last seen by a neighbour near to Machrie Golf Club, Machrie Bay, at around 6.10pm on Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

He was described as white, 5ft 4, 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 hate and brown hiking boots.

At the time of his disappearance, a search team from Police Scotland working alongside Arran Mountain Rescue, RNLI, the RAF and the Coastguard was tasked with finding John.

Despite hours of tireless work, they were never able to locate the him.

The family remain hopeful that answers can be provided about his disappearance, but say they are under no illusions about the situation after all these years.

John's daughter-in-law Rhona said: "It's been four years since my father-in-law went missing and there's still no sign of him but I thought I would share this in case anyone can help in any way".
