Chief Inspector, Mark Hamilton, also offered an update on Stuart, urging members of the public to get in touch if they have seen or heard anything regarding Stuart’s location.
He said: “It’s almost four weeks to the day since anyone last saw Stuart, he was last seen in the Barn Park area of Wester Hailes on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 22. He’s not followed any of his usual routines, and not been in touch with any of his friends or family either.
“We continue to ask the local public for their help in trying to trace Stuart. We’ve had officers out from different specialist departments, specialist searchers, our dog unit, helicopter and our diver marine unit, but so far, we’ve still not been able to find Stuart.
“We’re also asking the public to please check their CCTV cameras. If you have a video doorbell or dashcam footage, check that too. No piece of information is too small, and it might be the key to finding Stuart.”
