A BATTLEFIELD man has gone missing after leaving his work on May 17.

Alan Strong, of Camphill Avenue, Battlefield, was last seen at his work in Lochleven Road, Battlefield at 1pm.

The 37-year-old’s family are growing increasingly concerned for his safety and well-being.

Sergeant Katrina McLaren, of Cathcart police office, said: “Since Alan was reported missing, police have been carrying out enquiries and searches to trace him, however we have not managed to locate him.

“It is thought that he may have left in a silver coloured Range Rover vehicle which has not been seen since his disappearance.

“Alan has not been missing before and understandably his family and friends are becoming increasingly concerned for his safety and well-being.

Alan is described as white, 5ft 10inches in height with medium build and short brown hair.

He was last seen wearing a black, hooded jumper, blue jeans and white and blue trainers. Anyone with information should contact Cathcart police on 532 4900.

Meanwhile, police are appealing for information following the disappearance of a 27-year-old woman from Pollokshields.

Lynda Zefaj, also known as Lynda Spence or Lynda Palmer, was last seen by her parents at 6pm on April 13 leaving their house in Partick after visiting them.

The following day Lynda sent a text to her mum saying she had travelled to London.

As her parents have received no further contact from her and her trip to London did not seem to be planned, Lynda’s parents subsequently reported her missing to police.

Sergeant Stuart Gibson, of west end police office, said: “Despite our extensive enquiries we have yet to obtain any information on Lynda’s whereabouts. We are now concerned for her safety and well-being.

“Lynda has a Silver Vauxhall Astra car registration number DV56 FKW which we have yet to trace so I would appeal to anyone who has seen this car from April 14 onwards to get in touch as a matter of urgency.

“I would ask Lynda to contact her parents or a friend if she is safe and well, who can let us know that there is no cause for concern”.

Anyone with information should contact police on 532 3500.
