Police have issued a fresh appeal on the third anniversary of pensioner's disappearance from his Glasgow home.

David Findlay, 69, left his house in the city's Cardonald area to go for a walk at about 1500 BST on 5 May 2008.

The keen walker regularly travelled on foot to areas in Paisley, Johnstone, Drumchapel and Clydebank.

Despite several unconfirmed sightings of Mr Findlay in the weeks following his disappearance, police have been unable to trace him.

The reported sightings were in Cumbernauld, Coatbridge, Milngavie, Kirkintilloch, Shettleston and Kilsyth.

Family 'hopeful'

The missing man is described as 5ft 4in (1.63m) tall, of medium build with grey receding hair.

He was last seen wearing gold-rimmed glasses, grey trousers, a brown suede jacket, a grey jumper with white and red stripes, and black shoes.

Insp Alan Rodgers, of Strathclyde Police, said: "This is now the third anniversary of David Findlay's disappearance and despite our extensive inquiries, we have yet to obtain any information on David's whereabouts.

"David's family are still hopeful that information will come forward which will give them some sort of closure.

"I would urge anyone who may know of David's whereabouts or who may have any information about him, to contact us as a matter of urgency."
