Police Concern Grows For Missing Wigtown Pensioner

POLICE continue to search for missing man Gavin Tait from Maidland Place, Wigtown, was last seen over 4 weeks ago on 14th March 2019.

Specialist search officers have been carrying out searches of the fields and gardens around his home in Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway. Gavin is described as 5 foot 10 inches tall with grey hair and a beard. Gavin is known to be a keen walker.

In a new appeal for information a Police Spokesman stated “We would like to ask everyone in Wigtown who has an outbuilding, shed or garage to take a couple of minutes to check them, just in case Gavin has taken unwell and perhaps has had to seek shelter.”
We have now established his last confirmed sighting was Thursday 14th March 2019, not the 18th as previously believed. We know he purchased items at a local store on that morning and the receipt for the items was found with his home address.
We are keen to speak to anyone who knows Gavin or his possible whereabouts. Anyone with information is asked to phone 101 quoting incident number 1731 of 06/04/2019.”
