The police are appealing for information to help trace Arkadiusz Zielinski, who left his home in Tolbooth Wynd at around 6pm on February 23.

It was anticipated he would return a few days later, having intended to travel to the Highlands, however, he has failed to do so and the last contact with him was on Sunday, February 27.

Concern is now growing for the 44-year-old’s welfare and anyone who can assist officers with their inquiries is asked to come forward.

Arkadiusz is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall with a stocky build, blue eyes and short brown hair.

He is believed to be wearing an orange jacket, as shown in the photograph above, and blue jeans,

It is believed he may have travelled to the Galashiels area in his black Audi A6 S Line car, with registration number LN56 ZPP.

Inspector Colin Fordyce from Craigmillar Police Station said: “It is unlike Arkadiusz to fail to return home or stop contacting family and friends and as such we are keen to trace him as soon as possible.

“Anyone who knows his current whereabouts is asked to contact police immediately.

“In addition, I would urge Arkadiusz to get in touch as soon as possible and let us know he is safe.”
