Police in Banff are making a further appeal for help in tracing missing man 35-year-old William Hay.
So far enquiries show that he was in the town of Macduff in the early hours of Sunday, 8 December, and officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him.
William was dropped off by a taxi near the junction of the High Street and Buchan Street in Macduff around 3.20 am. He was then seen on CCTV at around 3.50am walking along Buchan Street, in the direction of the Royal Tarlair Golf Club, Macduff, possibly heading out of town.
He is described as being five foot ten inches tall, with slim build and a gaunt appearance. When last seen he was believed to be wearing a green waterproof jacket, dark blue jeans, a red and cream checked shirt, with a black beanie hat or snood.
It is also thought that William was in the area of a minor road crash earlier near to Crudie before he got a taxi.
Inspector Graham Greig said
We have been carrying out searches on the A98 between Crudie and Macduff as part of our efforts to trace Mr Hay. We now have a sighting walking towards the Royal Tarlair Golf Club about 3.50am.
We are keen to speak to anyone who may have been around at the time in the morning or who may have been driving past and have dash-cam footage which could give us an indication of where William went next.
Likewise, if William himself reads this appeal please get in touch. Anyone who can help should call us on 101, quoting incident 0782 of Sunday, 8 December.
