He left Thorntonhall at around 10am and travelled to Queen’s Street Station in Glasgow.
The last confirmed sighting of Timothy was at 5.35pm on Wednesday at Mallaig train station.
Timothy is described as around 6ft tall, of large build, with grey/white hair and wearing glasses.
When last seen he was dressed in a navy blue puffa jacket, navy blue chino trousers, and brown brogue-type shoes. He is believed to have a rucksack with him.
Inspector Gordon Millar said: “This behaviour is out of character for Timothy and we are working to trace his current whereabouts.
“As part of this we are liaising with transport providers and train companies as we believe Timothy took the train from Queen’s Street on Wednesday, September 1, and then was in Mallaig station later that evening. We are keen to establish where he went since leaving the station.
“I’d asked people in and around the Mallaig and Morar areas to report any sightings of Timothy so that we can investigate. He may be hiking and camping in these areas so we’d ask anyone who could have seen him to get in touch with police as soon as possible, as concerns are growing for his welfare.”
Those with information should report this to Police Scotland via 101 and quote incident number 1966 of 2 September 2021.
