Police Scotland is appealing to the public for information concerning the whereabouts of a 53-year-old man from the Forth Valley region.

John Nicol has been reported missing from his home in Bo’ness and was last seen in the area on Tuesday 10th June.

It is believed that John was planning on travelling either to Edinburgh or to an unknown destination in England, and enquiries are ongoing to trace him.

John is described as being around 6ft tall, has a bald head, and was last seen wearing jeans and a white t-shirt.

Inspector Anton Stephenson, who is based in Falkirk, said: “It is out of character for John to go missing like this and not to have been in touch.

“We are eager to make sure he is safe and well and would urge anyone who thinks they may have seen John since 10th June or who has any information as to his whereabouts to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
