Appeal for witnesses who helped injured man

Published 20 December 2019

Police are appealing to members of the public who came to the aid of an injured man on a country road in Perthshire on Wednesday, 18 December, 2019 to come forward.

Around 1.45 pm on Wednesday afternoon, a member of the public called police to let them know that a short time ago she, along with some other passing motorists, had stopped on the Huntingtower to Tibbermore Road, near to Gloagburn Farm, Perthshire, to assist a man who appeared to be injured.

The man was white, skinny build, in his late teens to early 20s, dark hair, spoke with a local accent and was wearing a long sleeved light coloured t-shirt and dark coloured bottoms.

Detective Constable Jamie Heald, Perth CID, said: “The injured man was not in the area on police arrival so we have still to trace him.  Enquires are ongoing but so far we have not been able to find out who he is.

“The cars that stopped to assist were a blue 4 x4 (no make) and a vehicle towing a horse box.

“We are keen to speak to the occupants of the cars, especially if one of them took him to hospital or home for example.

“We need to find out what happened to him and if he is ok.

“If you are one of those who helped the man, or if you have any information that will assist our inquiry, then please contact Perth CID via 101 quoting reference number 2082 of the 18 December, 2019. If you want to provide information but wish to remain anonymous, then contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
