The following message has been circulated on behalf of West Lothian Police
West Lothian Police are re-appealing for information in tracing 28-year-old Joel McDiarmid ( picture below) who is missing from his home in Bathgate.
Joel was last seen by his family at his home around 4pm on Wednesday, 17 November. He has not been in contact with his family or friends since then which is completely out of character for him.
He is described as white, 6ft 3ins in height and of slim build with medium-length dyed blond hair. When he was last seen he was wearing a dark green G-Star jacket, black jogging trousers and black trainers.
He is known to travel by public transport and likes to visit Glasgow and Edinburgh, and we are liaising with our colleagues in these areas too in case he has travelled there.
We would urge anyone who has seen Joel since Wednesday to contact us, or indeed Joel himself to get in touch us to let us know that he is safe and well.
Please share as appropriate
Anyone with any information on his whereabouts should contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 1809 of 18 November.
