Police today released CCTV images of the last sighting of a missing Aberdeen man.
Wayne MacMillan, 45, was last seen leaving a Stagecoach bus no 10 service at around 1pm on Saturday September 8, 2018, near Brodie Countryfare.
The bus stop is situated around 200 metres east of the store on the A96 and the service was busy at the time.
A team of specialist officers have been carrying out intensive searches of a vast expanse of land stretching out from the bus stop.
The searches are ongoing and members of the public are being asked to look out for any sign of activity in case Wayne has been sleeping outdoors.
Wayne, who is from Aberdeen, was reported missing on Friday September 7 after friends raised concerns that they had not heard from him. Police believe he was travelling between Inverness and Aberdeen during that week but from Saturday afternoon onwards they have no confirmed sightings of him.
Detective Inspector Allen Shaw said: “A significant period of time has now passed without Wayne being in touch with anyone. We know that he got off the no.10 bus service at Brodie on September 8 and we would like to speak to passengers who were on the bus at the time who remember seeing him. Wayne has distinctive features that might have stuck in people’s mind – he is described as being around 6ft, has a tattoo of a face on the rear of his head, has a stud piercing under his bottom lip and both his ear lobes are stretched. Did he speak to anyone?
“I urge anyone with information to please get in touch by contacting Police on 101 quoting missing person ref. no. MP180902922. I would also ask anyone who lives in the Brodie area to check any outbuildings, garages or sheds if you haven’t done so already in case he has taken shelter. When last seen he was wearing a black T-shirt and black trousers or dark blue jeans and should be carrying a rucksack.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been in touch with information so far.”
