A MAN has been missing from Falkirk for almost two weeks amid the coronavirus crisis.

Officers are appealing for information in a bid to trace Michael Fitzpatrick.

He has been reported missing from his Falkirk home and was last seen in the Haugh Street area of the town on Friday, April 17.

Michael has not been in contact with family or friends, who reported his disappearance at the weekend.

He is described as being 5ft 10in tall with short brown hair.

Police enquiries suggest he may have travelled to Edinburgh and boarded a train for Berwick on Tweed.

It is possible he may be camping in the wild.

Sergeant Fiona Picken, of Falkirk Police Station, said: "It is out of character for Michael to be out of contact with family or friends for an extended period and [we] have concerns for his welfare as a result.

"We would urge anyone who may have seen him at any time since April 17 to let us know as soon as possible.

"Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland by calling 101 and quoting incident 3309 of April 26."
