Scot who disappeared 25 years ago could be in London
Peter McGuire vanished from Fife in 1993 but a man using his name has been found.
A man who went missing from Fife almost 25 years ago may now be in London.
Peter McGuire from High Valleyfield was last seen leaving a swimming pool in Dunfermline in January 1993.
The 21-year-old's car was found near the Forth Road Bridge but an extensive search found no clues as to where he might be.
In November 2016, police were told a man using Mr McGuire's name and date of birth was sleeping rough in Hastings in East Sussex.
The man, who knew about Mr McGuire's circumstances, left Hastings shortly afterwards and may then have been in west London.
As part of a renewed appeal to find Mr McGuire, police released an image of what he may look like now.
Detective inspector Kelly McEwan 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 to identify and speak to this individual."
'We all love you so much and worry about you every day. Please Peter find it in yourself to get in touch.'Family statement
He added: "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."
