Police have issued a new appeal in a bid to trace a man who has been missing from his Glasgow home for eight years.

David Findlay was aged 69 when he left his home in the city's Cardonald area at about 15:00 on 5 May 2008.

The keen walker regularly travelled on foot to areas in Paisley, Johnstone, Drumchapel and Clydebank.

Despite several unconfirmed sightings, police were unable to trace Mr Findlay. They have asked anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact them.

'Open inquiry'

Ch Insp Simon Jeacocke said: "This remains an open inquiry and anyone with any information or knowledge about David or his whereabouts is asked to contact officers at Govan Police Office.

"The last eight years have obviously been extremely upsetting for David's family - all they want is for him to return home or at least know he is safe and well."

Mr Findlay is described as 5ft 4in tall, and of medium build with grey receding hair and gold rimmed glasses.

The last confirmed sighting was about 18:00 on Monday 5 May 2008 on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow at West Nile Street.

Officers also followed up a number of unconfirmed sightings in Cumbernauld, Coatbridge, Milngavie, Kirkintilloch, Shettleston and Kilsyth.
