POLICE are continuing to search for a Renfrew man who is thought to have fallen into the River Clyde last week.

Graham Clark, from the Moorpark area, disappeared on Tuesday, January 9, after being seen by his mum at her home in the Knightswood area of Glasgow at around 6am that morning.

At around 6.25am, police found Mr Clark’s car, reportedly a green Mazda, abandoned on the southbound carriageway of Glasgow’s Kingston Bridge.

Police divers began to scour the River Clyde with help from the Glasgow Humane Society for any sign of Mr Clark but he has not yet been found.

Officers are continuing to search the water and surrounding area but have admitted the chances of finding 54-year-old Mr Clark alive may now be slim.

Chief Inspector Simon Wright told The Gazette: “All the evidence would indicate that Mr Clark has entered the water and has not come out.

“All our searches are now focused on the River Clyde and recovering the body of Mr Clark.

“The public have helped with the search and I would like to thank people who have come forward.”

Mr Clark’s family have also offered their thanks to all those who have tried to help find him since his disappearance.

In a statement released through the police yesterday, they told The Gazette: “We are being kept fully updated by police and we are happy with the support given by them.

“We would like to thank members of the public who have come forward with information.”

Despite no luck so far, the search for Mr Clark is expected to continue until specialist officers believe every option has been exhausted.

George Parsonage, officer in the Glasgow Human Society, said: “My main aim is to recover the body as quickly as possible.

“No-one believes their loved one is dead until they have proof and it’s up to us to make sure they can get it.”

Mr Clark is described as white, around 6ft tall and of medium build.

He has light brown, closely-cut hair and wears glasses.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen Mr Clark or his car stopping on the Kingston Bridge to contact them on 101.
