Lothian and Borders Police are appealing for information to help trace a man who has gone missing in the Scottish Borders.

Angus Clyde was last seen leaving his home in Traquair at around seven o'clock on Monday 19th November and his family believed he was heading to work.

However, he failed to show up and when he did not return home that evening, his family contacted the police.

The 58-year-old's Toyota Yaris was later found within a car park at the Thornielee Woods and officers have been conducting local enquiries to trace him.

Anyone who believes that they have seen Mr Clyde since Monday morning has been asked to come forward.

Mr Clyde is white, 5ft 10ins tall with a muscular build, with short black, but greying hair with blue eyes and glasses.

He was believed to be wearing a navy body warmer, dark green overall and black boots at the time that he went missing.

"Mr Clyde has now been missing for a number of days without making contact with family or friends and officers have yet to locate him during their enquiries.

"We are now keen to hear from members of the public who may have seen him anytime since 7.10am on Monday and would urge anyone with information as to his whereabouts to contact police immediately."

Inspector Mike Wynne
