Police are appealing for assistance from the public and the media to trace an elderly man missing from Springburn since Thursday (September 22).

Edward Keenan (84), who has vascular dementia, left his home in Broomfield Road at around 9.50am yesterday morning.

He is described as white, 5ft 5in height, balding with grey hair and a scar on his neck.

He was wearing a black leather jacket, brown cord trousers and black shoes.

He walks with a limp and uses a walking stick.

Inspector Brian McGeogh, from Shettleston Police Office, said: “There was a confirmed sighting of Mr Keenan just after 10am (on Thursday) on Wallacewell Road getting off a bus with the intention of getting the number 57 to Hillington.

“We have circulated his description to bus companies and have officers in both Springburn and Maryhill checking CCTV and on patrol looking for him.

“There was a possible sighting of him at Springburn Shopping centre earlier and officers are checking there as well around his home address.

“Mr Keenan has been missing a couple of times before but is usually traced locally.

“He doesn’t normally venture too far from his home so that fact that he may have got on a bus and not let family know where he’s gone, is of concern.

“I would ask that people keep look out for him and if anyone sees him, then please contact police via 101.”
