He had a distinctively thin face and sharp features and was wearing a dark blue jacket with the words North Face on the chest and on the rear right shoulder. He may also have had the hood up.

Det Ch Insp Jim Downie, of Strathclyde Police, said: "We know so far that Mr Conway was walking on Skirsa Street in the Cadder area around 0725 hours yesterday morning and a short time later he was found seriously injured within the flat in Scaraway Street.

"However, at this stage we do not know exactly where or how the young man came about his injuries.

"Officers are carrying out door-to-door inquiries and scouring local CCTV footage to try to piece together his movements prior to being found."
