Police have released CCTV images of a missing Aberdeen teenager as their search for him continues.
Liam Smith, 16, was reported missing from the Queen’s Road area of Aberdeen and police say CCTV captured him at McDonald’s on Union Street at just before 12.30pm on Saturday.
It is understood Liam purchased food at the restaurant before making his way on foot to Union Square and then boarded a 202 bus to the Deeside area at around 1.30pm.
Inspector Jackie Knight said: “Liam was reported missing to police on Sunday morning but he was last seen during the afternoon of Saturday.
“Given the passage of time his family is naturally becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
“We are asking that if anyone saw him on board the 202 bus on Saturday that they contact us. We just want to make sure he is safe and well as soon as possible.
“I would also appeal directly to Liam that if you are reading this you contact police to let us know you are okay.
“Inquiries are ongoing with the bus company to establish where and when Liam got off the bus but we would urge anyone who saw him on the bus or has seen him in the Deeside area to contact police on 101 using reference number 1302 of November 19.”
Liam is described as white, 6ft 4in tall and of slim build.
He has short brown hair and when he was last seen he was wearing a dark top, blue jeans and Nike Air Max trainers.
He is also understood to be carrying a camouflage North Face backpack.
