Police have issued a renewed appeal for sightings of a missing Moray man in the hope it will give them new leads for finding him.
Alan Morrison was last seen in the Buckie area on Christmas Eve. He was reported missing to police on January 11.
Police are reminding members of the public that he is still missing. Officers hope the renewed appeal will help generate new lines of inquiry.
Since he was reported missing, extensive police searches have been carried out in the vicinity of his home at Lawson Place, as well as focusing on the Burn of Buckie, the coastline and other routes he was known to walk. Specialist teams, Aberdeen Coastguard and the RNLI were also involved in the multi-agency search.
Detective Inspector Martin Macdougall said: “It is now one year since Alan was last seen and his disappearance so tragically marked the Christmas period for his family. They have been looking for answers since and our thoughts are with them as we mark this difficult anniversary.
“I would like to thank the members of the public who were in touch throughout our early inquiries, as well as for the support shown to Alan’s family. I would also like to thank our partner agencies for their valuable assistance in our efforts to trace Alan over the past year.
“A missing person investigation is never closed and we will continue to react on any new information we receive, at any point. It is not too late to get in touch and I would urge anyone who may have information to contact us on 101, if you think you can help.”
