Searches are continuing in Moray today as part of efforts to trace missing Aberdeen man Wayne Macmillan.
The 45-year-old was reported missing last week after friends raised concerns that they had not heard from him.
Police now know he has travelled between Inverness and Aberdeen during the past week before arriving by Stagecoach bus no. 10 service outside Brodie Countryfare at around 1pm on Saturday.
There has been no sightings of Wayne since, nor has he been in touch with anyone. A significant search operation has been launched in the area led by specialist officers assisted by police dogs.
Wayne is described as being around 6ft and has a tattoo of a face on the rear of his head. He has a stud piercing under his bottom lip and both his ear lobes are stretched.
When last seen he was wearing a black T-shirt and black trousers or dark blue jeans.
Detective Inspector Allen Shaw said: “Wayne has some distinctive features which we would hope that members of the public who have seen him would remember.
“I would urge anyone who has seen a man matching his description or if you know where he might be to please get in touch as soon as possible by contacting police on 101.
“We would also appeal to Wayne directly to get in touch if he sees this appeal – we want to ensure you are safe and well.
“I would also ask anyone who lives in the vicinity of Brodie Countryfare to check any outbuildings, garages or sheds you have incase Wayne has taken shelter.
“It has been a number of days since we last had a sighting of Wayne so please still get in touch even if you think your information might be too old.”
