Police searching for a man missing for six weeks have released an image of the boat he was last seen getting into.

Extensive searches have been under way for Joachim Brolly, 59, who has not been seen since about 3pm on Thursday March 9.

The last sighting of him was at the south end of Loch Awe in Argyll and Bute, where he got into a boat at Torran Bay Hostel.

Police divers are still searching new areas of the loch and police are appealing for information.

Officers are hoping the image will help jog the memories of people who were in and around Loch Awe on the day Mr Brolly disappeared.

Inspector Julie McLeish said: “Extensive searches involving police and fire services along with the coastguard have been carried out in an attempt to locate Mr Brolly.

“Police divers are still conducting searches in new areas of the loch and we would welcome any new information from members of the public.

“If you were in the area of Loch Awe on Thursday March 9 and may have seen Mr Brolly, or the boat in the image, please get in touch.

“We would particularly like to speak to anyone who was out in a boat on Loch Awe that day.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Lochgilphead police station via 101.”

Mr Brolly is described as white, 5ft 6ins, of medium build, with short grey hair and clean-shaven.

When last seen, he was wearing navy trousers, a navy fleece and a navy jacket.
