Police are appealing for assistance from the public in an effort to trace a 30-year-old man missing from his home in Govanhill, Glasgow, since Friday,November 25.

On Sunday 27 November, police received a report that James Smith (30), was last seen at his home address in Nursery Street, Govanhill.

He is described as white, 5 ft 10 in height, medium build, with short black hair. He has brown eyes, is usually clean shaven.

Police believe that he may be wearing a black hooded top, black tracksuit bottoms and grey trainers. He may also be carrying a rucksack.

Sergeant Andrew Durnin, from Gorbals Police Office, said: “James has been dealing with some personal issues recently, however, he has never been missing before or been out of contact with his family for this length of time. There are real concerns for his well-being.

“Officers have been checking CCTV and searching around his home. We have been speaking with local businesses and public transport operators as part of our enquiry. James is quite new to Glasgow and has connections to the Dunfermline and Perth areas, so it is possible he has travelled east or north without communicating this to friends or family.

“We are appealing to anyone who knows him or knows where he is to get in touch. Also, if you have seen someone matching his description, then please contacts officers at Gorbals police office on 101.

“I would also appeal to James himself. Please know that your family are very worried. Please let your family and the police know that you are safe and well.”

Anyone with information that can help trace James is asked to contact officers at Gorbals Police Office on 101.
