THE appeal to trace a Wee County man continues after he was last seen three weeks ago.

Redmond Taylor left Forth Valley Royal Hospital at around 12.30pm on Tuesday, February 12, and police revealed last week as part of an appeal that he was spotted walking on the Torwood area around an hour later.

The 26-year-old Alloa man, who has connections to Tullibody as well, has not been in contact with his family since and concern for his welfare kept growing since.

Police are urging everyone on Torwood and around Glenbervie to come forward if they have information that may be relevant.

Renewing the appeal this week was Sergeant Jo Moffat of Alloa Police Station, who said: “It's now been three weeks since Redmond was last seen and we have significant concerns for his welfare.

“I want to thank the communities of Forth Valley for their support and assistance with our enquiries so far.

"We're now urging anyone who lives in Torwood or Glenbervie or has visited these areas in recent weeks, perhaps using the nearby wooded areas for walking or recreational activities, to contact us if they may have seen Redmond or found any clothing similar to that which he was last seen wearing."

Redmond is described as white, around 5ft 7in tall, of a slim build, with short brown hair, blue eyes and stubble.

According to the latest from a CCTV image, he was wearing a black long-sleeved top, dark-coloured jeans, grey trainers and was carrying a white bag.

He is known to travel across the central belt and particularly to the Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife areas.

Anyone who has seen Redmond, or has information on where he may be, is urged to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1457 of February 13.
