Police continue to try to locate 63-year-old George Critch who has been missing from Inverness since Wednesday June 9.

Enquiries have established that Mr Critch was last seen around 1pm in the Leachkin Road area of Inverness.

Police say that Leachkin Road is a densely populated area and it’s possible someone saw the missing man and thought nothing of it.

He is described as around 6ft tall, of medium build with white short hair and white stubble.

When last seen, he was wearing a black tracksuit, a navy-coloured Scotland t-shirt, black jacket, black trainers and has glasses which he may or may not be wearing.

Inspector Les Davidson said: “Our concern for George is growing and his family is very upset, they just want him home safe and well. I am appealing to anyone who was in the area of Leachkin Road, Foresters Way, Kinmylies and Great Glen Way yesterday to think back and consider if they saw George. I would also ask people who have Ring doorbells, private CCTV and dash cams to check their footage as it’s possible an image, which could assist our enquiries, has been captured.

"The police incident caravan has been set up at the top of Great Glen Way in Inverness and anyone with information relating to sightings of George can attend there to speak directly with officers.

"Alternatively, anyone with information which could assist can call 101, quoting incident 2414 of 9 June."
