Fam­ily of miss­ing man travel to Perth

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

The fam­ily of a miss­ing man whose mo­bile phone was found in Perth have trav­elled to the city in the hope of trac­ing him.

The last known sight­ing of Steven Gaythorpe, who lives in Whit­ley Bay, was at New­cas­tle Cen­tral train sta­tion on Fe­bru­ary 7.

Po­lice say he is thought to have driven to Scot­land in a black Nis­san Note, with his phone be­ing found in the KFC restau­rant.

A di­rec­tor and writer with the Zendh The­atre Com­pany, he used to live in Ed­in­burgh and his fam­ily think that it is likely he has been to Perth in the past.

His brother-in-law Gor­don Lar­mour and his wife He­len – Steven’s sis­ter – trav­elled to Perth from their home in Kil­marnock in the hope that they might be able to trace him.

“It is to­tally out of char­ac­ter,” said Mrs Lar­mour.

Her brother had been due to pick up his wife from the train sta­tion but didn’t meet up with her.

“We just want to Steven to let us know that he is fine,” said Mr Lar­mour.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on Mr Gaythorpe should phone po­lice on 101.
