Missing teenager last seen at Forth Valley hospital
Josh White, 18, has not been heard from since Wednesday morning.
A teenager has gone missing after leaving the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Falkirk.
Josh White, 18, was last seen around 10.40am on Wednesday, when he left the hospital and boarded the number 38 bus towards Edinburgh.
Josh has links to Falkirk and Cumbernauld but has not returned home or been in contact with anyone since.
Josh is described as white, 6ft 1ins, of slim build, with medium length hair coloured green, blue and purple.
He often wears jeans, blue shoes, a black jumper and a beanie hat.
Officers are keen to trace a woman described as wearing thick rimmed black glasses, who was seen talking to Josh on the bus and who may have information that leads to Josh's whereabouts.
Inspector Alyson Bolton said: "I would ask anyone who may have been in contact with Josh, or who has seen him, to contact police immediately.
"We believe Josh may have travelled to Edinburgh and would ask members of the public to be vigilant and look out for a man matching Josh's description and report any sightings to police.
"If Josh see's this appeal, I would ask that he contacts either us or someone he trusts to let us know that he is safe."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Falkirk Police Station via 101.
