Major hunt after man vanishes from ferry
A MASSIVE sea, air and land search was launched after a young man vanished mysteriously from a ferry en route from Shetland to the north-east.
Three lifeboats, two helicopters, nearly 20 ships and Coastguard shore teams scoured a 200sq mile area in the hunt for the 22-year-old.
He was one of 166 people on board the NorthLink vessel MV Hjaltland as she sailed from Lerwick to Aberdeen.
