'Sighting' Of Missing Student In Edinburgh

Police are investigating a possible sighting of a French student missing in Edinburgh.

Antoine Maury, 21, a French national studying in the city, was last seen in Milton Road West at around 11pm on Monday.

Officers have now issued a fresh appeal for information following a possible sighting of a man matching his description.

The man was topless and he was spotted between 10.45pm and 11pm on Monday near the Duddingston Village area of Holyrood Park.

Officers searched the area on Wednesday with the assistance of police dogs, and Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue and Borders Search and Rescue Unit.

Mr Maury is white, around 6ft, of medium build, with short brown hair, a beard and a fair complexion. He has a tattoo of a bleeding hand on his forearm.

He was last seen wearing a brown/green bomber jacket with dark chinos and a white beanie hat. He is thought to have been wearing black and white Vans trainers.

Inspector Alan Carson said: "Antoine has now been missing for a significant amount of time and we are very concerned for his welfare.

"He is not familiar with the Edinburgh area and could easily have become disorientated and lost.

"We would again call on anyone who has seen Antoine or recognises his description to contact police on 101.

"I would also urge members of the public living in the Duddingston Village area to assist our search by checking their gardens and outhouses, as this may help to establish Antoine's whereabouts.

"All these efforts will help us to trace Antoine.''
