John Leathem believes his sentence for stabbing the 15-year-old to death is too long.
Reappeal Over Missing Teenage Boy
Police are reappealing to the public for help three weeks after a teenager went missing in Clydebank.
Scott Diver was last seen around 14:45 on Saturday 17 September at his home in Second Avenue.
Despite a number of reported sightings officers have yet to find the 16-year-old.
Scott is described as around 5ft 7 inches in height, of slim build, with blue eyes and dark hair.
He was last seen wearing a navy blue Adidas tracksuit with light blue stripes down the arms and legs, a white t-shirt and navy blue Adidas training shoes with grey stripes.
Inspector John Mullen said: "It has now been three weeks since Scott was reported missing and his family are extremely worried about him.
"I would continue to urge anyone who recognises Scott, or who has any information regarding his whereabouts, to contact officers as soon as possible.
"We know that Scott was captured on CCTV walking through Dalmuir Park, in the direction of the park entrance at Mountblow Road, around 14:53 on the day he went missing.
"I would ask anyone who may have seen him that day to come forward as you may have information that could assist with our enquiry.
"I would also appeal directly to Scott to please get in touch with someone to let us know he is safe. Youâ€™re not in any trouble, but there are a lot of people worried about you and we need to know that you are ok."
