New appeal to find missing Buckie man
POLICE have launched a new appeal for information in a bid to trace missing Buckie man Alan Morrison.
It comes a year since he was last seen in the town.
Mr Morrison was reported missing to Police on Friday, January 11, after his family raised concerns they had not seen or heard from him since Christmas Eve. It is hoped that this renewed appeal a year to the day he went missing will help generate new lines of enquiry.
Since Mr Morrison was reported missing, extensive police searches were carried out in the vicinity of his home at Lawson Place, as well as focusing on the Burn of Buckie, the coastline and other routes he was known to walk. Divisional officers were assisted by specialist teams, Aberdeen Coastguard and the RNLI.
Detective Inspector Martin Macdougall said: “It is now one year since Alan was last seen and his disappearance so tragically marked the Christmas period for his family.
"They have been looking for answers since and our thoughts are with them as we mark this difficult anniversary.
“I would like to thank the members of the public who were in touch throughout our early enquiries, as well as for the support shown to Alan’s family. I would also like to thank our partner agencies for their valuable assistance in our efforts to trace Alan over the past year.
“A missing person investigation is never closed and we will continue to react on any new information we receive, at any point. It is not too late to get in touch and I would urge anyone who may have information to contact us on 101, if you think you can help.”
Anyone with information is asked call Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident 2636 ofJanuary 11, 2019.
