Police are appealing for information to help trace a man reported missing from Edinburgh’s Old Town.

James Farmer was last seen in the Grassmarket area around 10.30am on Thursday 22nd January.

Since then the 51-year-old has not been in contact with friends or family and concern is now growing for his welfare.

James is around 5ft 7 inches tall, average build with a fair complexion and salt-and-pepper coloured hair.

He was wearing a black ‘Everlast’ jacket and sports trousers with a white stripe, and a hat.

James still has family in the Kirkcaldy area and has also been known to travel to Stirling, Aberdeen and other parts of the country on the bus.

Police Inspector Nick Young said: “We are keen to establish that James is safe and well and we would ask anyone who can assist us in tracing him to come forward.

“Anyone with information can contact us on 101.”
