An “extensive” search effort for a missing Aberdeen teenager is continuing this evening.
Emergency services including police, fire and Coastguard have been looking for David MacLeod since he was last seen two days ago.
Today they have been searching near the mouth of the River Don, as well as wooded areas further upstream.
The 18-year-old has not been seen since around 1pm on Friday, when he was on Stafford Street, near Berryden Retail Park.
Early this morning officers could be seen searching at the Donmouth Local Nature Reserve for the teen.
Specialist teams were called out to help with the operation at Diamond Bridge in Tillydrone, and along the river and wooded areas between it and Seaton Park.
This work is expected to continue throughout this evening.
Additionally, officers have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries and scouring CCTV footage as part of their investigation.
Mr MacLeod is white, around 6ft in height, and has a thin build with brown eyes and hair.
He also has a small scar on his cheek and is usually clean-shaven.
The teenager was last seen wearing a waterproof jacket with a horizontal red, grey and black stripe at the bottom, as well as black jeans and black trainers. He was also carrying a black rucksack.
Inspector George Nixon said: “It is now over 48 hours since David was last seen and both ourselves and David’s family and friends continue to be concerned for his welfare.
“We are focusing our activity in the Seaton Park, Balgownie, Grandholm, Tillydrone and Old Aberdeen areas in particular.
“ I would urge anybody who thinks they have seen David or has any information as to his whereabouts to contact us.
“Additionally, I would ask that anybody who lives in these areas to check sheds, outbuildings or gardens for anything which may assist us in our inquires.”
