CCTV image of missing man who vanished on Halloween released
Shaun Ritchie disappeared from a wooded area near Strichen on October 31 following a night out with friends.
CCTV footage of a missing Fraserburgh man who vanished nearly two weeks ago has been released.
Shaun Ritchie, 20, disappeared from a wooded area near Strichen on October 31 following a night out with friends.
In a new image released by police in Aberdeen, Mr Ritchie is seen in a Fraserburgh shop on the afternoon of his disappearance.
Over 200 specially-trained officers joined mountain rescue teams from across Scotland on Tuesday.
A police helicopter, divers and dog handlers with 27 search dogs searched an area close to the A98.
They were accompanied by more than 40 of Mr Ritchie’s family and friends.
Community Policing Inspector Alan Brown said: "The image clearly shows what Shaun was wearing on the day he went missing. The last known sighting of Shaun was in the area between Strichen and the A98 Fraserburgh to Banff Road.
"Significant resources have been involved in the search for Shaun with extensive searches in open areas, woodland and waterways in a bid to trace him and during the course of the enquiry, items of his clothing have been recovered.
"As time passes we are increasingly concerned for Shaun's safety, we appeal for anyone who knows the whereabouts of Shaun or has any information that could assist us with our enquiries to contact Police Scotland on 101."
