Fife family’s plea to missing Peter almost 25 years on


A renewed appeal has been made for information on the whereabouts of missing Fife man Peter McGuire by his family.

On 27th January 1993, Peter, who was 21 at the time, went missing from his home in High Valleyfield. He was seen later that day leaving the Carnegie swimming baths.

His car was recovered near to the Forth Road Bridge but there were no further sightings or information regarding Peter’s whereabouts.

In November 2016,  information was received by police that a man using Peter’s name and date of birth had been living rough in the Hastings area of England.

As a result of inquiries, it was established that this man moved on and may have then been living in the West London area.

Peter’s family were informed of these updates and police are continuing to carry out investigations to identify the man using Peter’s name and date of birth.

Police have now released two photographs, one of what Peter looked like in 1993 (below right) and one of what he may look like now (below, left).


Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan from Dunfermline CID said, “At this time, we do not know if the male down south is indeed the Peter McGuire who went missing from High Valleyfield almost 25 years ago, however he provided information which suggested knowledge of Peter’s circumstances.

“As such we are conducting a thorough investigation and liaising with our colleagues at the relevant police forces to try and identify and speak to this individual.

“Members of the public who live in any of the locations currently involved in this inquiry and who believe they have useful information are asked to contact police immediately, particularly those living and working within the homeless networks.”

Peter’s family have issued a statement saying, “Peter you are a big part of our lives that is missing and the pain of that has never gone away.

“We all love you so much and worry about you every day. Please Peter find it in yourself to get in touch.

“It would be a blessing to hear from you. We would love for you to be a part of our lives again in any way you choose, your terms, your pace, one step at a time.

“We are here for you, our doors will always be open for you. God bless you Peter and know that you are loved by us all so very much.”
