A 65-year-old man has been reported missing in Melrose.

Borthwick "Kenny" Wilson, from Hawick, was last seen leaving Huntlyburn House - a mental health ward run by NHS Borders - at 2pm yesterday (Tuesday, July 28).

Police Scotland say there have been no sightings of him since, and concern is now growing for his welfare.

He's described as white, with a slim build, around 6'2", with balding grey hair and clean-shaven.

He was last seen wearing a blue top, blue trousers, green polo top and possibly a green jacket.

We are keen to establish Kenny's whereabouts as soon as possible and anyone who believes they have seen him since Tuesday is asked to come forward.

In addition, we would ask Kenny to get in touch with friends, family or police and let us know you are safe and well."

– Inspector Kevin Harris
