What makes a same person over time according to Thomas Reid.

I know that for locke, a same person over time means that your personal idenity and consciousness stay the same. Like you can cut a hand off, but you are still the same person.

I read all the website online, but I could find Reid's arguments against locke. I want to know what Reid thought of what makes a same person over time?
