Extensive searches using drones, divers and a helicopter have been carried out as the hunt for missing north-east man Ruairidh Sandison enters its third day.
The 24-year-old was last seen in the Gadle Braes area of Peterhead at around 4.20am on Saturday.
Officers examining CCTV footage confirmed he was still in the area at 5.10am that morning.
Since then, searches have been carried out in the town and along the nearby coastlines in a bid to trace the “popular young man”.
And today, a new picture of Ruairidh has been released with members of the public urged to share appeals and contact police if they have any information.
