A man who went missing from Fife almost 25 years ago may be in London, police have said.
Peter McGuire, then aged 21, from High Valleyfield, was last seen leaving the Carnegie Swimming pool in Dunfermline on January 27 1993.
His car was later recovered near the Forth Road Bridge.
Mr McGuire’s family have urged him to get in touch, saying: “We all love you so much and worry about you every day.”
In November 2016, police received information that a man using Peter’s name and date of birth had been living rough in the Hastings area of England.
However, it was established that the man quickly moved on and may then have been in the west London area.
Police are working to try and identify the man using his name and date of birth and urged anyone with information to contact them.
Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan, from Dunfermline CID, said: “At this time, we do not know if the male down south is indeed the Peter McGuire who went missing from High Valleyfield almost 25 years ago. However, he provided information which suggested knowledge of Peter’s circumstances.
“As such, we are conducting a thorough investigation and liaising with our colleagues at the relevant police forces to try and identify and speak to this individual.
“Members of the public who live in any of the locations currently involved in this inquiry and who believe they have useful information are asked to contact police immediately, particularly those living and working within the homeless networks.
“We would also ask that if Peter McGuire becomes aware of this appeal then he comes forward to speak with us. I would like to stress that our priority is confirming if Peter is safe and well and we will not disclose his whereabouts to any other person against his wishes.”
In a statement issued through Police Scotland, Mr McGuire’s family said: “Peter, you are a big part of our lives that is missing and the pain of that has never gone away.
“We all love you so much and worry about you every day. Please Peter find it in yourself to get in touch.
“It would be a blessing to hear from you. We would love for you to be a part of our lives again in any way you choose, your terms, your pace, one step at a time.
“We are here for you, our doors will always be open for you. God bless you Peter and know that you are loved by us all so very much.”
