Concern is growing for the welfare of the lead singer of indie rock band Frightened Rabbit after he was reported missing.
Scott Hutchison, 36, has not been seen since he left the Dakota Hotel in South Queensferry at 1am on Wednesday.
His “worried” band members posted a message on Twitter asking for anyone with information to contact police.
They said: “We are worried about Scott, who has been missing for a little while now.
“He may be in a fragile state and may not be making the best decisions for himself right now.
“Please could Scott or anyone with any information on his whereabouts please contact Police Scotland (101).”
