A Highland rapist who had been reported missing has been traced today, police have confirmed.
Officers issued an appeal asking for help to find Derek Mackay, 33, after he failed to comply with conditions of a court order, on Monday.
The Invergordon man was jailed for four years and three months in 2013 for raping a 30-year-old woman at a house in Ross-shire.
He had previously been described as a risk to the public.
A police spokesman said: “We can confirm that Derek Mackay, 33, from Invergordon was traced earlier today.
“Thank you to everyone who assisted with our previous appeal for assistance.”
