A MISSING man was best man at his brother's wedding just last weekend, it emerged, as police said there was nothing to explain his disappearance.

The wife of missing Gregor Gibbons yesterday made a tearful appeal for his return as police revealed his car was found that morning.

Leanne Gibbons, sitting beside Gregor's dad Robert, 58, struggled to keep speaking as she told her husband she loves him and wants him home.

The 34-year-old spoke at Maryhill Police Office where she was also supported by Gregor's brother, Scott.

Leanne said: “Gregor, I don’t know why you’ve not been in touch but we all love you and just want you to come home.

“We all, especially our nephews Aaron, Max and Scott, miss you very much and we just want you back.

“Please get in touch with us or the police to let us know you are OK.

“We’d like to appeal to anyone to come forward with any information and contact police as soon as possible.”

Keen football fan Gregor was last seen by his wife around 6pm on Tuesday evening when he left home for work in his white Ford Fiesta.

There were then three sightings of him between 8pm and 10pm on the canal path at Twechar.

Leanne said her husband, who was a regular gym goer, was last wearing black shorts and a black hoodie but sightings would suggest he changed his clothes to a grey hooded top and long trousers.

Inspector Pauline Thomson, who is heading the search, said: "Gregor is very close to his family, his wife and brother, who's effectively his best friend.

"He has a very stringent routine that he lives by and this is completely out of character for him.

"He's never done this before and certainly never given any cause for concern."

Cops revealed his vehicle was found yesterday morning parked on Grovepark Street in Maryhill, near to Firhill football ground.

There have been three sightings of the 32-year-old, who works in a printing firm, at the Clyde and Forth Canal path near Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire.

Concerned relatives reported Gregor missing after he failed to turn up for work.

On Friday morning, underwater marine units were dispatched and police officers in kayaks searched the canal near Twechar Bridge.

Specialist search officers are scouring the family home in Colston for clues.

Witnesses described Gregor as wearing a grey hooded top when he was seen at the canal on Tuesday evening.

Inspector Pauline Thomson said: “Our inquiries at the moment have focussed around speaking with Gregor’s family, friends and work colleagues.

“We’ve has support from our dog branch and air support unit and today we will be focusing our inquiries along the canal path and canal from Maryhill all the way up to Kirkintilloch.

“We’ve also got police officers on foot and on off-road mountain bikes along the canal paths or make sure Gregor hasn’t tripped or fallen and we’re just looking for his safe return.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen Gregor or who may have seen his white Ford Fiesta to contact us.

“Any small piece of information could help us find him.

“His family is understandably very upset at his disappearance and just want to know he is safe and well.”

Gregor is around 5ft 5in in height with short, shaven dark hair and is of athletic build.

Anyone who sees him can call police on 101.
