POLICE are appealing for help to find a missing man after bags containing his property were found in the Bridge of Dee area, which has been hit by flooding over the past few days.
Officers are concerned for the safety of 48-year-old Terence Kilbride after two bags containing personal items were found behind Boots at Garthdee on Saturday.
A report from people concerned about Mr Kilbride, who is originally from the Warrington area, was given to police on Monday.
Inspector David Paterson said: “Given the recent inclement weather we are extremely concerned to trace Mr Kilbride and confirm he is safe and well and we are treating this as a missing person inquiry.
“A photograph, which is a few years old, of Mr Kilbride has been provided and we are asking people to see if they recognise him.
“Mr Kilbride is known to go camping and spend time outdoors and it is thought he may have been camping in the Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire areas.
“It is also thought that he may have a bicycle with him.
“If you have any information which may help us trace Mr Kilbride please contact us on 101.”
Mr Kilbride is described as 6ft tall with short dark greying hair and blue eyes.
