Out of concern for his welfare, he was reported missing to police on Monday November 2, 2020.

Constable Brown from Grangemouth Police Station, had said: "After speaking to neighbours, we know that Allan has not been home to Bo'ness for a few weeks now.

“He had been known to frequent the Paisley Road area of Glasgow and we believe he has been there recently. He may also have been homeless for a period of time.

"He was due at an appointment on Tuesday October 27, but didn't attend, and that, combined with the fact no one has been able to speak to him, is concerning.

"We would ask that anyone who knows where Allan is, or who has any information that will assist police trace him to make sure he is ok, contact Grangemouth Police Station via 101. Please quote reference number 2936 of Monday November 2, 2020."
