Police issue CCTV images of James Brannan who has been missing since February 5.

Officers appealing for help tracing missing pensioner James Brannan in Aviemore have released a new CCTV image.

Police said inquiries were continuing into the 72-year-old pensioner’s disappearance.

He was last seen late on the afternoon of Saturday, February 5 near Spey Valley Golf Club.

He was reported missing on Tuesday, February 8.

The CCTV image was not taken on the day Mr Brannan was reported missing. Police say it does, however, show him in the clothing he was last known to be wearing.

At the time of his disappearance he was wearing blue jeans, a dark winter jacket and walking boots.

He is described as being around 5ft 10in tall and of thin build with medium-length grey hair and a grey beard.

Police say the CCTV image is a good likeness of Mr Brannan’s recent appearance.

A police spokesman said: “We would also be keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam or private CCTV footage which may help.

“We would continue urge anyone who lives locally and has a shed or outbuilding where someone could seek shelter to check this and report anything of note to police.

Extensive police enquiries and searches have been ongoing since he was reported missing.

“Searches are ongoing in Aviemore in an effort to trace James Brannan nearly a week after he was last seen in the village.”
