Missing Melrose man Lee Hawley spotted in Pitlochry on Hogmanay

police scotland officer

A missing man believed to be travelling to the Highlands was spotted in Perthshire on Hogmanay, police have said.

Lee Hawley, who was reported missing from Melrose in the Borders on December 19, was seen in the Co-op in Pitlochry at 2.30pm on Friday.

Officers believe that Mr Hawley intends to travel to the Highlands and are asking members of the public to report any possible sightings of him.

The 42-year-old is described as being 5ft 11ins with short dark hair and a goatee.

He is of slim build and was last seen wearing a green waterproof hooded jacket, khaki green trousers and black boots.

It is believed that he is travelling on foot.

‘We are growing increasingly concerned for him’

Police Scotland have asked that anyone with information on Mr Hawley’s whereabouts come forward.

Sergeant David North said: “We think Lee may still be in Tayside but there is a possibility he could have travelled anywhere.

“We are growing increasingly concerned for him and I would ask that anyone who may have seen him to contact police as soon as possible.

“Anyone with information should call 101 quoting police reference 3081 of Sunday, 19 December, 2021.”

Mr Hawley has since been found safe and well.
