Police have been questioning motorists and residents in a Clackmannanshire village where a teenager was abducted and sexually assaulted a week ago.

The 14-year-old schoolgirl was walking along High Street and Hillfoots Road in Dollar when she was approached by a man and forced into a green car.

She was then driven to a farm track near Linn Mill and sexually assaulted.

The abduction took place at 0820 BST last Monday. Police said they were hoping to jog people's memories.

Det Ch Insp Brian Johnston, who is leading the inquiry, said: "We want to speak to people who may have been in the area this time last week.

"They may have been on the school run or driving to work - perhaps they stopped to withdraw money from a cash machine or stopped at a local shop for an errand."

The teenager was ordered out of the green car on a track just off the B910 near Castlebridge Business Park. She was able to flag down a passing motorist who raised the alarm.

Police are appealing for anyone stuck in queuing traffic at a T-junction in Ramshorn - between Dollar and Linn Mill - where the driver of a green car was seen acting anxiously.

Det Ch Insp Johnston said: "Perhaps the green car was behind you and you were concerned by his manner. Or perhaps you were the driver of the green car and you are not connected with this incident.

"We need to trace this driver to eliminate him from the inquiry."

The driver was described as being in his mid thirties, about 5ft 8in tall, with short receding brown hair and with bad facial skin.

He is also believed to be wearing a light-coloured top, possibly with a Celtic motif.

Det Ch Insp Johnston added: "We have had a great response from the public and we are following various lines of inquiry.

"The focus for officers today is the area where the girl was abducted and also the area where she was found."
