HELP is being sought to locate Iain Hutcheon who is missing from his home in Keith.
The 54-year-old was reported missing shortly after 2am today.
A confirmed sighting of his black Mitsubishi Lancer – registration SG08 KFO – was made southbound on the A876 at Bowtrees Roundabout near Falkirk shortly before 6am.
Inspector Graeme Allan said: "This behaviour is out of character and as time goes on we are growing increasingly concerned for Mr Hutcheon's welfare.
"We would urge anyone who has information to come forward as soon as possible.
"He drives a distinctive car and I would also ask anyone who believes they may have seen it or Mr Hutcheon himself to let us know.
"We do not know where he may have intended to go after the sighting of his vehicle near Falkirk so any information could be useful."
Mr Hutcheon is described as 5ft 6in to 5ft 8in tall with a medium to stocky build. He is balding with grey hair and wears glasses.
When he left his home he was believed to be wearing black jeans, a navy top with a green collar and work boots.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident 260 of June 19.
