POLICE officers looking for missing Forth man Paul Robertson now believe he may have travelled to the east of Scotland.
BT worker Paul (47) was last seen by a colleague on South Back Road in Biggar around 8.40am yesterday (Wednesday),
He drove off in a white BT Open Reach van with registration number LD08 XVZ.
At lunchtime today Police Scotland said that their enquiries had revealed the van had been spotted on the M8 at Harthill heading east on Wednesday evening.
Paul is described as 5ft8, slim, short brown hair, brown eyes, clean shaven with a pale complexion and sometimes wears glasses. He was last seen wearing his BT uniform which consists of blue trousers and a blue fleece with the company logo on it.
He was also wearing orange high visibility overalls.
Sergeant Susan McGinlay said: “This is very out of character for Paul to disappear like this and we are becoming increasingly concerned for his well-being.
“His family and friends are very concerned and ask him to get in touch with someone as soon as possible to let them know he is safe.
“I would urge anyone who recognises Paul’s description or has seen the van he was driving to contact police via the non-emergency number 101.”
