Officers are appealing for information to help trace 87-year-old Forbes Cassie, known as Bob, who is missing from his home in Mintlaw.
Bob was last seen at his home at Brae Crescent at around 2 am today, Monday 23 October.
He is thought to have left in his car, a blue MG ZR with registration SK04 EPT, early this morning.
Bob is described as around 5ft 9ins tall, of medium build and has grey balding hair. He suffers from dementia and may be confused. It is thought he may be wearing a navy coat and trousers.
Sergeant Andy Sawers said
It is out of character for Bob to not be in touch with his family and we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. Anyone with information that could assist police or who sees Bob’s car is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident 731 of today, 23 October.
