The CCTV images show him wearing a blue fleece with a short zip at the front, black trousers and black shoes.

Matthew is described as around 5ft7, of medium build, with short reddish hair, a red beard and is bald on top. He wears glasses.

Sergeant Clair Fletcher, of Falkirk Police Station, said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Matthew’s welfare and want to trace him as soon as possible to ensure he is safe and well.

“It is extremely unusual for him not to be in contact with friends and family and they are understandably very worried.

“We have released these CCTV images of Matthew at the Bowhouse Services in Airth on Monday morning to show what he was last seen wearing and the car he was driving.

“If anyone was in the area around this time and recognises the man in these images, I would ask they contact police as soon as possible.

“If Matthew sees this appeal, I would ask him to please contact family, friends or police to let us know he is safe.”

Anyone with information on Matthew’s whereabouts should call police on 101, quoting reference number 0775 of February 17.
