"If you saw or heard anything that would assist our enquiry, and have not yet come forward to police, then please call officers at Maryhill Police Station via 101 and quote reference number 2936 of Sunday, 8 November, 2020.

"We are particularly keen to obtain any dash-cam footage from cars passing around that time.  

“Garrioch Road can be a busy road with people travelling from the West End to Maryhill, so it's possible cars passing may have captured footage that may help our enquiry."
