Police have scaled back the search for a Huntly man missing for four weeks.
Significant efforts have been made to trace Romanian national Marian Pavel, but officers have found no trace of the 45-year-old.
Inspector Matt Smith thanked members of the public for their help and urged anyone with information to get in touch.
Mr Pavel was last seen at around 7.30pm on Wednesday February 20, near to the Dean’s shortbread factory on Huntly’s Steven Road.
Dogs, helicopters and divers have all been involved in searches but there has been no trace of Mr Pavel, nor any of his belongings.
The searches have included areas of woodland, farmland and parts of the River Deveron and River Bogie.
Inspector Smith said: “Our searches have been intelligence-led and have focused on the information available to us.
“We are very grateful to members of the public who have supported us with our inquiries, particularly those who got in touch to report that they had seen Marian.
“We have no new confirmed sightings of him at this time but would continue to urge anyone who thinks they might have information to get in touch with us on 101.
“Reviews of the inquiry have been carried out and will continue as is standard with any long-term missing person investigation.
“Any new information that comes to light will be thoroughly investigated.
“We will continue to update Marian’s family and our thoughts remain with them.”
