The police are appealing for information as the investigation continues to trace a Wishaw man who went missing in Spain four months ago.
Alan Jeffrey (25) was last seen on Sunday, June 10, in Tenerife, whilst on holiday with his girlfriend.
They were due to return home that day, however he intimated he was going to continue his holiday with some friends, and she returned home by herself.
Alan’s family have had no contact with him since then, and reported him missing to on June 26. He is described as white, around 5’9”-5’10”, of stocky build with short, receding brown hair.
Inspector Keith Campbell said: “Whilst it seem unusual for police in Scotland to be investigating a person missing in Spain, we are liaising with Spanish authorities and Europol with our enquiry.
“All of Alan’s family, friends and associates are here in Scotland and he was reported missing here. A number of officers have been working on this enquiry for some time, however it has been challenging as we haven’t received much information so far, and this is why we are now appealing to the public for their help.
“Given the passage of time and with some of the information we have received, we cannot rule out that some harm may have come to Alan.
“He may have decided himself not to return home, however it is very unusual for him not to be in touch with his family for such a long period of time.
“We do know that the he had intimated he was planning to travel to Marbella with some friends however he has not been heard from since. We remain focused on tracing him safe and well.
“If Alan himself is reading this appeal, please get in touch with your family as they are very concerned.
“I would ask anyone who may have information to contact police via 101.”
