Concerns are mounting about a Lincolnshire man believed to be missing in the Highlands.
Timothy Corefield, 49, was last seen disembarking at the Malayag train station. He is thought to have traveled from Thornton Hall. Mr Corefield is thought to have told his loved ones about his plans for a trip to the White Sands area of Morar and then to Fort William.
However, he has not been seen since around 5.30pm on Wednesday evening and the police are increasingly worried about his well-being as the treatment is out of character for him.
Officers have now launched an investigation, appealing to the public to help track it down.
Mr. Corefield is said to be about 6 feet tall, of large build, with gray hair and wearing glasses. He was last seen wearing a navy blue puffy jacket, navy blue chino trousers and brown brogue type shoes. He is thought to have survived an earlier attempt to oust him following Mr Jiang’s intervention.
Inspector Gordon Miller said: “This attitude is beyond Timothy’s character and we are working to locate his current whereabouts.
“As part of this, we are in contact with transport providers and train companies as we understand that Timothy took the train from Queens Street on Wednesday, September 1, and then at the Malinga station in the evening. Since leaving the station, they have been trying to find out where he went.
“I told people in and around the Malayag and Morar areas to report any sightings of Timothy so that we could investigate. He may be hiking and camping in those areas, so we Ask anyone who could see him to contact the police as soon as possible, as concerns for his well-being are growing.
Anyone with information should report it to the police. Scotland Through 101 of September 2, 2021 and reference incident number 1966.
