Police appeal for information to trace a man reported missing at West Linton.

Kevin Dalgetty was not at his home in Kingside Cottages when his son came to visit at around 11pm Monday evening.

Attempts were made to contact the 52-year-old but so far these have been unsuccessful and he has not been seen or heard from since Sunday evening.

It is believed he may be driving his silver Renault Traffic van, which has ‘Straiton Building and Roofing Services’ written in black on the side.

Kevin is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall with a stocky build, dark brown hair and a tattoo of a Japanese fish on his left forearm.

It is very out of character for Kevin to go off and not inform his son as to where he is going or when he will be back and as such, we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Anyone who can help us establish Kevin’s current whereabouts is urged to contact police immediately.

I would also ask that Kevin make contact with a family member, friend or with police to let us know he is safe.”
