Appeal from missing man’s family

The family of a man who has been missing from his home in Bishopbriggs for more than two weeks has appealed for him to get in touch.

Manvir Singh (21) has been missing since March 19. Enquiries have revealed that he was seen in St Andrews on the day he went missing around 9pm.

Manvir’s father, Harpal, said: “Manvir is a much loved son and is known as ‘Sonu’ to family and friends. We haven’t heard from him or seen him from more than two weeks and we are very worried about him.

“We know that Sonu got on a bus in Glasgow and travelled to St Andrews on Wednesday, March 19, but we don’t know what happened to him after he got off the bus.

“We are keeping in touch with his friends in the hope that they may hear something from him – all we want to know is that he is all right.

“If anyone has seen Sonu or knows where he may be, please do get in touch with the police so that we know he is safe and well.”

When Mr Singh was last seen he was wearing a navy blue hooded top with yellow markings on it, dark coloured jeans and dark coloured boots.

He was also carrying a black bag.

Extensive enquiries have been carried out, however attempts to trace him have so far proved unsuccessful.

Mr Singh’s mum, Kirandeep, said: “Sonu, we want you to know that you are not in any trouble and that everyone is worried about you.”

Superintendent Thom McLoughlin said: “Despite extensive inquiries we have still not traced Manvir. We are currently investigating the latest sighting of him in St Andrews and continue to actively seek new lines of enquiry.

“Manvir is a young, intelligent, active young man and there is nothing in his background to indicate why he would not maintain contact with his family.

“As time goes by we are all becoming increasingly concerned for his safety. The lack of contact has been extremely distressing for his family and I would urge anyone who recognises his description, or has any information regarding his whereabouts to contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Kirkintilloch Police Office on the non-emergency number, 101.
