Police yesterday deployed drones over the Aberdeenshire countryside as efforts to trace a missing 74-year-old artist intensified.

Robin Green was reported missing from the West End area of Aberdeen on Sunday. Initial reports suggested he was last seen at 8am in Craigton Park.

But now, police investigating Mr Green’s disappearance have determined that he was last seen at around 2.30pm that day walking along the B976 Crathie to Gairnshiel road around the Mill of Strachan area.

Officers believed he walked there from Banchory.

When last seen, Mr Green was wearing a light blue polo shirt with horizontal stripes and grey jogging bottoms.

He may have been wearing a black jacket and carrying a small green hiking bag.

Police launched a drone out at Feuchside, in Deeside, as part of the hunt yesterday.

It is not the first time the pensioner has gone missing, with a similar search launched in 2016 in the same area.

Inspector Chris Kerr, from North East Community Policing, said: “We remain concerned for Robin’s welfare and, as he is known to travel to the Deeside area, we have been focusing our specialist search activity there.

“I am appealing to anyone who has been travelling along the B976 in the last 48 hours that has a dash-cam to please check back and see if there is any footage of a person matching Robin’s description that may be of use to us.”

The pensioner describes himself as a self-employed artist and sells a range of paintings on social media.

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101, quoting reference number 1338 of May 24.
