Police are becoming "increasingly concerned" for the welfare of a Musselburgh man who has not been in touch with his family for four days.

John Muir, 33, was reported missing after last being in contact with his family at about 10.40pm on Thursday, January 31.

Following a Police Scotland social media appeal, a member of the public reported seeing a man matching Mr Muir's description at Vogrie Country Park, Midlothian, at about 3.50pm on Saturday.

The man was near the public car park, walking in the direction of Vogrie House, and was described as wearing a grey hooded top.

Police are appealing for anyone else who may have seen this man at the country park to come forward - or for anyone to contact them if they believe they, and not Mr Muir, were the person spotted. 

Inspector Jim Langsdale of Police Scotland said, "As time passes, we are becoming increasingly concerned for John's welfare.

"We are asking anyone who believes they may have seen John either in Vogrie Country Park or elsewhere, or may have any information that could assist with our enquiries, to please contact Police Scotland on 101 as soon as possible quoting reference 3037 of 1 February." 

Mr Muir is described as white, 6ft 2ins tall, of stocky build, with dark hair with some grey which is cropped at back and sides and longer on top.

He is likely to be wearing dark coloured training shoes, blue coloured jeans and a dark coloured hooded top possibly with ‘Amsterdam’ and an image of a bicycle printed on the front.
