The father of a missing Stirling University student David O’Halloran has made emotional public appeal for help to find his son.
Alan McInnes is convinced that his 18-year-old son is still alive.
O’Halloran was last seen in Bridge of Allan during the early hours of 18 January after a night out at Dusk nightclub in Stirling city centre.
Extensive police searches have been carried out however there has been no trace of the teenager.
During a police press conference, Mr McInnes made a direct appeal for his son to get in touch.
He said: “David, son. If you can see or hear this; please know that we miss you, we love you, and we all need you home. Our family is incomplete without you.”
O’Halloran is a first year student at Stirling University. He is studying mathematics and education.
He had returned on the 18 January, by taxi, to the student accommodation close to the campus just before 01:00.
He was last seen on CCTV crossing Henderson Street in Bridge of Allan and was heading in the direction of the Keir Roundabout at about 02:20 on Friday 18 January.
Friend and fellow Stirling University tennis club member Matthew Gallagher, said: “There are still posters everywhere and in the library we have TV’s reminding everyone of all the details of the incident.
I think it’s unlikely that he’s still alive but everyone hopes that he’s found safe and well.”
Police are urging anyone with information to come forward. O’Halloran is described as being 5ft 5in tall, of slim build, dark brown hair with blonde highlights which is short at the back and longer on top.
He was dressed in a white t-shirt with a black and green checked shirt on top, black slim-fit jeans and black trainers.
Anyone with information should contact Central Scotland Police on 01786 456000.
