Police appeal for help finding missing man near Ratho Station

Police Scotland is appealing for information in order to trace a 39-year-old man who is missing from the Ratho Station area.

Robert Anderson, also known as Bobby, was last seen around 4.50pm on Wednesday, March 20, leaving the reception of the Norton House Hotel on Glasgow Road. 

He was seen walking down the driveway of the hotel, however his movements after this point are unknown. 

Robert is from the Kirkcaldy area of Fife and is unfamiliar with the Ratho Station area. With this in mind officers are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. 

Robert is described as a white man with a medium build, short black hair, brown eyes and a pockmarked face. He speaks with a Fife accent.

He was last seen wearing a dark jumper, dark blue jogging bottoms and dark trainers. 

Inspector Keith Watson of Drylaw Police Station said: “This is unusual behaviour for Robert, who is from the Fife area and is unfamiliar with Ratho Station and the West Edinburgh area. 

“We are concerned for Robert’s welfare and are eager to trace him as soon as possible. I would ask anyone who is in the Ratho Station area tonight, and has seen someone matching Robert’s description, to contact us immediately. 

“Likewise I would ask Robert if he does see this appeal, to get in touch with either his family or the police to let us know he’s okay.”

Those with information regarding Robert’s whereabouts are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2928 of March 20.
