Police and Bandmates Offer Updates on Missing Frightened Rabbit Singer Scott Hutchison
Hutchison's brother and bandmate Grant shared a message via the group's social media accounts early this morning, informing followers that there was still "no news to report on Scott's whereabouts."
He did, however, thank fans for their support over the last couple days and urged people to "keep him in your thoughts, keep an eye out and keep sharing his picture online."
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 G— Frightened Rabbit (@FRabbits) May 10, 2018
Has anyone seen my brother/bandmate/best friend? He's in a very fragile state and has been missing since last night and we're all incredibly worried. He was in a hotel in South Queensferry and hasn't been seen or heard from since 1am. Please repost and share and get in touch with me @grabbit if you have any info. His phone is with the police. If somehow you are reading this Scott then can you just let someone know you are safe please? We love you very much. Grant x
Grant also appeared on Radio X, offering a brief message to his brother.
"Just come back," he said. "There's nothing so insurmountable that we can't figure it out together and help you to get better. We're all here for you, and we all love you very much. You can see the support online, as well. Then just know that everyone loves you very much, and we just want you to come back and be safe."
Police, meanwhile, are continuing to appeal to the public for any information. As noted by Grant, the authorities are now in possession of his brother's phone and continuing to investigate.
Journalist James Matthews shared an update from officers, who noted that two people were spotted on CCTV passing Hutchison after he left the Dakota Hotel in South Queensferry (near Edinburgh) in the early hours of yesterday morning.
As previously reported, Hutchison sent out a pair of worrying tweets prior to his disappearance. See those below.
Be so good to everyone you love. It's not a given. I'm so annoyed that it's not. I didn't live by that standard and it kills me. Please, hug your loved ones.— Scott Hutchison (@owljohn) May 8, 2018
I'm away now. Thanks.— Scott Hutchison (@owljohn) May 8, 2018
