They are particularly eager to hear from any members of the public living in Gartcows Road who have private CCTV that may have captured images of George.

George is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall with thinning hair on top and longer hair at the back and sides. George is believed to be wearing a green tammy hat, black jacket, long cardigan, blue and white checked shirt, black jeans and khaki-coloured trainers.

Detective Inspector Jim Thomson of Falkirk CID said: “I would like to thank everyone who has participated in the search for George, however it has now been a week and it is imperative that we trace his whereabouts as soon as possible.

“It is now our belief that George may have been in the Gartcows Road area of Falkirk on the night of Friday, February 10. I would appeal to anyone who remembers seeing or speaking to George to get in touch with us.

“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone living in Gartcows Road with private CCTV as this may have captured images of George as he made his way along the street. “I would again ask anyone who remembers seeing George on Friday, February 10, or recognises his description to come forward. That piece of information may be vital and may be what leads us to tracing George.”
