MISSING PERSON – JOSEPH SHIELDS, DREGHORN
Police Scotland is appealing for information to trace a 41 year-old man who is missing from Glasgow, and is believed to be in Dreghorn.
Joseph Shields (41), who is known as JoJo, was last seen in Glasgow City Centre around 2 pm on Wednesday 29 May 2019.
Since then officers have confirmed sightings of him in Dreghorn on Thursday evening.
He is described as 6ft 1 with short brown hair and is described as fit and healthy. He is believed to be wearing blue and navy blue coloured Nike Air Max trainers and a black and grey coloured hooded top.
Inspector Christine Boyd, Irvine Police Office, said:
“Joseph is a vulnerable man who takes regular medication and therefore as time goes on we are growing increasingly concerned for him.
“Although he had been staying in Glasgow, his family and friends live in Dreghorn and we believe this is why he has travelled there. However, we have been in touch with those who know him and nobody has heard from him.
“Officers have also been checking CCTV and working with transport companies in an effort to trace him and make sure he is safe and well.
“We are appealing for anyone who has seen him to get in touch with us. He may appear or become confused and therefore we would ask members of the public to not approach him and to contact Police via 101.”
Anyone with any information should contact Police via 101 quoting incident number 1996 of Wednesday 29 May 2019.
