    Mr Miller is described as 5ft 10in to 6ft tall and of medium build.

    He was last wearing blue jeans, a blue and grey t-shirt, black hooded water-proof jacket with a Douglas Park logo on the left breast.

    He was carrying a distinctive small black rucksack with light blue panels.

    Mr Miller usually wears a white-faced analogue watch with a brown leather strap.

    William is originally from West Dunbartonshire, knows the area well and is known to frequent the Milngavie, Balloch and Alexandria areas, including local footpaths and forest walks. He does not drive and regularly uses public transport to get around.
    “As a result of our enquiries, we understand that William may have connections in the Dunoon area, and may have travelled there, so I would urge anyone in the Dunoon area to study William’s photograph and contact police if they think they’ve seen him. I’d ask specifically for dog walkers to keep an eye out for him, as he is known to frequent local hillwalking sites and local landmarks such as the Stuckie Bridge. "Our last confirmed sighting of William was at the BP garage in Main Street, Jamestown, Alexandria around 0020 hours on Thursday 7 January 2016 after being seen in Fentons Public House where he spent most of the evening, which is located on the same road. We’ve had no other positive sightings since.

    I hope he hasn't tried walking home as suggested above.

    According to google maps, that's about 13 miles.

    Especially after maybe having had a few drinks.

    This isn't near Stirling at all. He stays in Balfron which is Stirlingshire but went missing in West Dunbartonshire.

    There has been lots of rain and snow recently so the river Leven would be swollen.

    No news, but a renewed appeal and (I think) a new picture:

    William Miller, from Balfron, Stirling, had last been seen in Jamestown, Alexandria at about 00:20 on 7 January.

    His body was recovered from the River Leven, near the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate in Dumbarton last Thursday.

    Police Scotland said there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

    Hopefully this apparently beloved man did not suffer, sad for his family, but glad Mr Miller has been located.
