POLICE have launched a renewed appeal across the Forth Valley after a 70-year-old man went missing.

Falkirk man George Stevenson has now been missing for a week now and concerns are continually growing for his welfare.

He was last seen on High Station Road in the town at around 11pm on Friday, February 10 and it is not known where he has been since.

George is described as whit, 5ft 8in tall with thinning hair on top and longer hair at the back and the sides.

It is believed he was wearing a green tammy hat, a black jacket, a long cardigan, a blue and white checked short, black jeans and khaki trainers.

Detective Inspector Jim Thomson, from Falkirk CID, said: "George has now been missing over a week without being seen or heard from and so far our inquiries have not led us to establish his whereabouts.

"Officers will be in the area of High Station Road Falkirk near to where George was last seen and around his home address in the Summerford area of Falkirk.

“This is with a view to gathering further information and possible witnesses.

"Anyone who knows where he is, or who has seen him since February 10, should contact police immediately.

"We would also urge George to make contact with ourselves, or with his family and friends, and confirm he is safe."

Those with information are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
