Police in Scotland and Cumbria have issued an urgent appeal to find a missing man from Annan, Scotland, believed to be in the north Cumbria area. Paul Darren Taylor, aged 56, was last seen on Tuesday 17 October at around 9:45pm when he left his home. The police are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare and describe his disappearance as “out of character“.
Paul is described as a White male who stands about 5’7” tall. He has short greying hair which is receding and wears glasses. Notably, he is clean-shaven and speaks with an English accent. Paul drives a blue Vauxhall Corsa with the registration PY18 DYO.
He was last observed in Charles Street, Annan, around 10pm on the night he went missing. Though Paul resides in Annan, authorities believe he may have travelled to the north Cumbria area, as he has connections there.
Police Constable Craig Wilson of Annan Police Station expressed concern about the missing man: “We are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of Paul and his disappearance is out of character. We are carrying out extensive enquiries to trace him.” The constable urged anyone who recognises Paul or has seen his vehicle to get in touch immediately.
Members of the public with any information regarding Paul’s whereabouts are strongly encouraged to report it to the police. Several options are available for reporting:
- Online reporting. Information can be submitted online through the Cumbria Police website.
- By phone. People can also phone in their information by calling 101. When calling, the public is advised to quote the reference number 1412 of 18 October.

This is an urgent situation, and the public’s help could prove invaluable in locating Paul Darren Taylor. His family and friends are deeply worried, and the authorities are making every effort to find him. Time is of the essence, and the sooner he is located, the sooner he can be brought back to his loved ones.
