Vulnerable Missing Man - Battlefield, Glasgow

Strathclyde Police is appealing for the assistance of the media and the public in a bid to trace a 30 year-old man who has been missing since Saturday 20 November 2010.

Gavin Fern (30) was last seen by his flatmate leaving his home address inProspecthill Road, Battlefield at around 1200 hours on Saturday afternoon.

Family and police are becoming increasingly concerned for his safety and wellbeing as he has not been seen or heard from since.

Gavin is described as white, 5ft 6 in height, of stocky build, with short brown hair, blue eyes, clean shaven and a fair complexion. When last seen he was wearing a long, grey winter coat and a scarf.

Sergeant Lynda McGowan is appealing for any information that will assist police in tracing Gavin. Speaking from Cathcart Police Office, she said:

“Despite an extensive search by officers we have so far been unable to trace Gavin. It is extremely out of character for him to go missing and all of his friends and family are becoming increasingly anxious as time goes on, particularly as he has medical issues and is not believed to have taken his medication with him.

“Our enquiries have revealed that Gavin used a bank machine in Central Station in Glasgow city centre on Saturday afternoon, however, we do not know if he then boarded a train. I would therefore appeal to anyone who can shed any light on his current whereabouts, or anyone who may be aware of his movements since Saturday 20 November, to contact us as a matter of urgency. We need to know that Gavin is safe and well.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Cathcart Police Office on 0141 532 4900 or contact their local police office.
