Police are investigating the possibility missing Aberdeen man Keith Roger caught a bus to Stonehaven.
Concerns were raised for the 52-year-old’s welfare after a Ford Ka he had access to was found on its roof between Monymusk and Kemnay at about 5.05am on Friday.
Mr Roger was reported missing from the Gordon Street area of Aberdeen and a man fitting his description was later seen at the bus station beside Union Square shopping centre.
It is believed he boarded a bus heading for Stonehaven at around 1.30pm, getting off in the Cowie Bridge area of the town.
Chief Inspector David Howieson said: “Given the passage of time since Mr Roger was last seen there are clearly concerns regarding his wellbeing.
“Our inquiries suggest a male fitting the description of Mr Roger boarded a bus from Union Square, Aberdeen, bound for Stonehaven at about 1.30pm on Friday August 9 and got off the bus in the Cowie Bridge area of Stonehaven.
“We would appeal to anyone who has seen Mr Roger or a male fitting his description or who was on the Aberdeen to Stonehaven bus on Friday to contact police by calling 101.”
Mr Roger is described as 5’10” in height and of medium build.
He has close cropped grey and white hair which is balding. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, dark jeans and black and white trainers.
