Police are growing increasingly concerned about a missing man from Jedburgh.

William Notley, 58, was last seen at around 10am on Monday, February 8, leaving an address in Bongate Gardens.

He sometimes sleeps outdoors or in remote farm buildings and barns, and has been known to travel on public transport around the Jedburgh area.

Recent low temperatures mean police are worried about his safety.

He is described as around 5ft 6ins tall and of slim build, with receding short brown hair and an English accent.

At the time of him going missing William wore heavy black trainers, olive green trousers, an olive green polo shirt, grey and black zip up cardigan, navy blue padded waistcoat and a navy blue hat.

We are carrying out various inquiries in the area in an effort to trace William as quickly as possible.

However, with the recent low weather temperatures we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

I urge anyone who has seen William or has information on his possible whereabouts should contact police immediately on 101 or speak to any officer.”
