An Inverness charity boss who had been missing since Friday lunchtime, was found this afternoon after a police search.

Alan Fowler is the chief executive of Inverness-based voluntary organisation Signpost. Recently renamed All In This Together, the charity works with voluntary groups as well as running a handyman service and city centre cafe.

Mr Fowler was last seen getting out of a taxi in Union Street in Inverness city centre at 1.30pm on Friday.

Concerns for his safety grew when it was discovered he had left his wallet at home, and his mobile phone appears to have run out of charge.

Mr Fowler was originally from Dornie but had been living in the Bunchrew area of Inverness for a number of years.

His daughter, Rebecca Fowler, told the Courier that he was found shortly after 2.30pm on Monday.

Miss Fowler, who had come to Inverness from her Fife home to lead a search for her father, said: “He has been found. He is now in hospital.

“I’d just like everyone to know that the police have managed to trace my dad.

“I would just like to say a massive thank you to every single person who’s shared this and messaged with kind words.”

Ms Fowler had previously made an impassioned plea on social media for her dad to tell them he was safe and well.

“He is not in a great frame of mind and is very vulnerable at the moment,” she said.

“This has come out of the blue. I don’t know where his disappearance has come from.

“It is completely out of character."
