NEEDING ANSWERS: Myra Brown (r) and her sister Yvonne Holland (l) called for the driver to come forward.
THE wife of a hit and run driver made an emotional appeal this afternoon to help track down his killer.
Myra Brown was in tears as she pleaded for more information on the driver who left her family "devastated".
Speaking from her home in Dailly, Myra was joined by her sister Yvonne Holland during the appeal.
The mum-of-two said: "Ian was a loving husband and father. His death has left our whole family devastated and we will miss him dearly.
"We live in a small community and are well known within that community - his death will be a great loss.
"I am asking anyone who knows anything, even if they think it's not relevant, to please pass it on to the police.
"It's so important to us that we find out what happened to Ian, so please, please come forward - only when we know what happened to Ian will be able to begin the process of moving on and trying to come to terms with his death."
Ian had been walking home from a night out in Girvan when he was struck by an unknown vehicle on Saturday, July 28, on the B748 Dailly to Girvan Road.
The 48-year-old had enjoyed a night in Girvan Bowling Club and left them in good spirits before starting the six mile walk home.
Yesterday (Monday) Strathclyde Police Superintendent Jim Baird asked for the person responsible to come forward.
He said: "We need to find out what has happened. The family need answers and closure about what has happened to their father and husband."
Ian leaves behind his wife Myra and two sons.
