Forensic police investigators have searched the home of a missing north-east man.
Officers are appealing for help tracing Alan Jones, from Rhynie, who was reported missing on Friday.
Police and forensic teams were spotted yesterday entering Mr Jones’ house on Main Street – although it is unclear what the outcome of the visit was.
Alan is described as 5ft 11in, with short brown hair. He speaks with an English accent, and may have been wearing dark jeans and a dark T-shirt when he disappeared.
Inspector David Hoyle said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Alan’s welfare and so I would ask that if anyone recalls seeing him this week to call us with details.
“Also, if Alan becomes aware of our appeal to trace him, I would ask that he gets in contact with us to let us know he is safe and well.”
