Just over a year after his disappearance, police have renewed their appeal for help to trace 59-year-old Neil Scott from Campbeltown.

Neil was last seen around 1pm on Tuesday July 6 2021, at the town’s Co-op supermarket.

He is described as being around 5ft 10in in height, of medium build with thinning grey/white hair.

He was last seen wearing a black thigh-length winter coat with a hood and reflective white stripes on two zips on the chest area.

He was also wearing faded blue jeans, a dark coloured cap and beige walking boots.

At the time of his disappearance, Sergeant Alasdair MacLaren said: ‘Neil is known to go walking in the area with his dog, an elderly cross breed collie.

‘We would appeal to anyone who has information on his whereabouts or anyone who has seen him to get in touch.’

In July last year, police appealed to walkers on the Kintyre Way route near Machrihanish for any sightings of Neil, after his dog Ramu was traced north of Earadale Point.

Anyone with any information is asked to telephone 101, quoting incident 0984 of July 8 2021.
