Police appeal over missing angler
John Stewart (pictured) was last seen by his father leaving the family home in Auchnacraig Road, Clydebank, Dunbartonshire, to go fishing with a friend early on Sunday, October 2. His father reported him missing after he did not come home after two days.
John is described as 38 years old, white, 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build with brown hair going grey. He has tattoos on both arms; a unicorn and a cross on his left arm and an eagle on his right. It is not known what he was wearing at the time he disappeared.
Sgt Alan Orr, from Clydebank police, said: "John, who lives with his elderly father in Clydebank, used to go fishing sometime ago, however, he has not expressed an interest in this for a good while.
“On Sunday he said that he was going out fishing with an old friend he had met from Bearsden. He said the man was called Peter, however, we do not know who this person is – although it is thought he may be an old army buddy.
“The areas he would have gone fishing are Greenside Reservoir, Carneddans Wood, Queens Reservoir and the Endrick River, however, all of these areas have been searched by officers with no trace.
“It is not like John not to keep in contact with his dad or family or to be away for any length of time, hence the concern for him.
“I would ask that either himself contact police to let them know all is ok, or for ‘Peter’ or anyone with information that will help find him to speak to police."
Sgt Orr said anyone with information should call 0141 532 3300.
