    Mr Hutchison’s family had voiced their concerns after tweets were sent by Scott shortly before he was last seen.

    At about 23:00 on Tuesday, he wrote: “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.”

    Minutes later he added: “I’m away now. Thanks.”

    The musician is originally from Selkirk but now based in Glasgow.
