Grampian Police have issued an arrest warrant after a convicted sex offender was reported missing.

Derek Robertson was last seen in Aberdeen on 24 February.

The 46-year-old was found guilty of indecent assault in 2003 and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison after a trial in Forfar.

Police said he had failed to follow registration requirements and appealed to anyone with information on his whereabouts to contact them urgently.

Det Ch Insp Martin Dunn said: "We have contacted our colleagues nationally along with partner agencies.

"No recent sightings of Robertson have been reported and we issue this appeal to the public to assist us in tracing him following a warrant having been issued for his arrest."
