Frightened Rabbit are appealing for information on the whereabouts of their frontman Scott Hutchison, after he went missing in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Hutchison was last seen leaving the Dakota Hotel in South Queensferry, near Edinburgh, at around 1am yesterday, after posting two concerning tweets. He is now believed to be elsewhere in the Scottish capital, according to police.

The band tweeted yesterday afternoon: “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)”.

In a further update this morning, they confirmed that Hutchison remains missing, saying: “We have no news to report on Scott’s whereabouts this morning. Your support so far has been incredible and all we ask is you keep him in your thoughts, keep an eye out and keep sharing his picture online. Thanks for everything. Your kindness and positivity is keeping us going”.

In a statement, Inspector Graeme Dignan from Drylaw Police Station, Edinburgh said: “We are keen to locate Scott as soon as possible to ensure he is safe and well and would urge anyone who can assist with our ongoing inquiries to come forward. If you believe you have seen him since the early hours of Wednesday morning or know where he currently is, then please contact police immediately. I’d also urge Scott to get in touch with family, friends, or with police, to let us know he is alright”.

Hutchison was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap, navy blue hooded jacket, grey or khaki trousers and white trainers.

Anyone with information can contact Drylaw Police Station by dialling 101 in the UK and quoting incident 0082 of 9 May.
