Missing Person Murdo MacAskill from Stornoway is now believed to be in the Newquay area, in county Cornwall. Police would appeal to anyone with information on Mr MacAskill’s whereabouts to get in touch on 101.

Murdo MacAskill was last seen disembarking a ferry in Ullapool at around 4.45pm on Tuesday 12th May, having boarded in Stornoway.

Since then however, the 54-year-old has not been sighted and has not made contact with friends or family.

Murdo has previously travelled to London and spent some time in the city and so officers are conducting enquiries to see if he may be in this area.

Anyone who can assist in locating Murdo is asked to come forward.

He is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall with a slim/skinny build and short brown hair. He was last seen wearing trousers/jeans, a dark jacket and carrying a backpack. Murdo speaks with a West Scotland accent.

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101.
