A search is under way for a Co Donegal man missing in Scotland for over a week.

Barry Doherty, 25, from Carndonagh was last seen on Monday 15 July in the Glenburn area of Paisley, southwest of Glasgow.

He left his home at around 11pm wearing a blue t-shirt, navy or black coloured shorts and grey coloured canvas shoes.

He is described as 1.8m (6ft) tall with a slim build, short brown hair and hazel-coloured eyes.

Scottish police said there have been no confirmed sightings despite extensive inquiries.

His family said it is most unusual for him not to be in touch and they are extremely worried about him.

He turned 25 last Thursday and did not make contact with any friends or family.

Mr Doherty often travels from Scotland to Donegal to visit family and friends.

Inspector David Brown from Paisley police office said: "We are becoming increasingly concerned for his wellbeing.

"At this time, I would urge anyone with any information about Barry's whereabouts or if anyone has seen him in the last few days to contact us so that we know he is safe and well."

Police are appealing for anyone with any information to contact them on 0044-141-532-5900.
