Police Scotland are continuing their search for a Selkirk man who went missing after boarding a flight to Spain.

Twenty-nine-year-old Peter James Smith was last seen leaving the UK on a flight from East Midlands airport to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands on January 14.

Since then he has not been heard from and his family have become increasingly concerned. He was due to fly back on February 13.

“He may have returned to the UK but his family are unaware of this” the spokesperson added.

Peter is described as white, 5ft 6in tall, with slim build, blue eyes, and short light brown hair, and speaking with a Borders accent.

Inspector Carol Wood from Police Scotland said: “Police are concerned for Peter and keen to find out his whereabouts.

“Anyone who believes they have seen Peter, or who has information that can assist our investigation is asked to contact police immediately on 101 or 0131 440 6861.”
