Specialist resources used to find missing man
Police spoke to motorists in the Leachkin Road and Great Glen Way areas of Inverness in an attempt to trace the missing Mr Critch.
Officers returned to the area one week on from the last reported sighting of him at about 1pm on Wednesday, June 9.
Inspector Peter Dingwall said: “Despite extensive searches and police inquiries, George remains missing a week on from when he was last seen.
“This is completely out of character for him not to keep in contact with his family and friends.
“His family are extremely distressed by his disappearance and as times passes, police are becoming increasingly concerned for his safety and wellbeing.”
A police incident caravan has been placed at the top of Great Glen Way for people with information to speak to officers.
