Police plea over missing Hawick man

Police have appealed for help from the public to try to trace a man reported missing in the Scottish Borders.

Barry Davies, 37, was last seen at Teviothead near Hawick late on Monday night.

Police said he had not been seen or heard from since and that concern was now "growing" for his welfare.

He is white, 6ft tall, of slim build, with a shaved head and blue eyes. He was wearing dark trousers, a black biker's jacket and black gloves.

He was carrying a camouflage rucksack and may have had access to a silver 4x4 vehicle.

Insp Kevin Harris said: "Local officers have been conducting enquiries within the Hawick area to trace Barry since he was reported missing.

"We are keen to establish his whereabouts as soon as possible and anyone who believes they have seen him since the early hours of this morning is asked to come forward.

"In addition, we would ask Barry to get in touch with friends, family or police and let us know you are safe and well."
