UK – The daughter of a missing Scotsman has issued an emotional appeal asking people to ‘please, please keep looking’ for her father. Alec, as Alexander Murdoch, was last seen on Thursday June 22 at around 10pm in the Marmion Road area of North Berwick. 71-year-old daughter Lydia fears he may have gotten ‘lost or disoriented’ after his stroke and may have traveled to Edinburgh, as Edinburgh Live reports.
Alec’s disappearance has been described as ‘unusual’ and ‘irrelevant’ by Police Scotland, who have issued a public appeal for him to be found. Alec is white, 5 feet 8 or 9 inches tall, thin to medium, and bald at the crown with very short sides and back. He also has glasses with a wire frame. Lydia updated her search to say thank you to everyone who has helped her so far and to keep posting her dad’s picture. She posted on Instagram, “Thank you so much to everyone who shared dad’s picture and kept an eye on him.”
Putting everything here so there’s a place that won’t disappear like Instagram stories when the content is no longer relevant. Please continue your search for Dad; we need him here. Lydia explained that her father had a stroke two years ago and that due to the special circumstances surrounding his disappearance, the family feared he might have another. It’s completely out of order for him to just disappear without saying anything, so we fear something similar may have happened.
He may be disoriented. Help us find him and bring him home safely by watching. Inspector Laura Stevenson expressed concern for Alexander’s well-being, saying: ‘This is very unusual for Alexander and concerns are growing for his well-being and we want to make sure he is healthy and safe. except. If you have seen it or know where it is, please let us know. Additionally, owners are urged to search their backyards, sheds, and other outbuildings, as well as any shared areas, in case Alexander has taken refuge there. If you have any information, you can message Lydia at @lydiarymu on Instagram or call the police in Scotland and reference case number 2037.
