Hutchison’s brother and bandmate Grant shared a message 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

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.

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.
