Robert Sloan hasn't been seen since Monday, and was last sighted at Haymarket

Police in Edinburgh are appealing for information to help trace a man reported missing from the city.

Robert Sloan was last seen around Haymarket on Monday 9 May at about 8.30am.

The 46-year-old hasn’t been in contact with friends or family since then, and concerns are growing for his welfare.

Mr Sloan is described as having dark receding hair, bald on top, but sometimes wears a wig as he is known to perform songs in the city centre.

He was last seen wearing a white baseball cap, dark Henley jacket with white writing on the left shoulder.

Constable Owen Hopkins said: “It’s possible that Robert may be sleeping in a tent, and he may be in the Roseburn or Murrayfield areas although he is thought to have connections in East and Midlothian.

“We’re concerned for Robert and are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about where he is. Equally, we would like to hear from Robert.”

Those with any information are advised to contact Police Scotland on 101.
