CCTV of a man missing in Aberdeenshire for 12 days has been released by police as the search continues.

Shaun Ritchie was last seen with friends at a remote woodland area near Strichen on the night of Friday 31 October into the Saturday morning.

The CCTV image was captured in Fraserburgh on the afternoon of the day Mr Ritchie was last seen.

It shows him wearing dark grey skinny jeans, a white t-shirt, a grey hoodie and brown trainers.

Insp 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."

More than 200 specialist search officers and 27 dogs have been involved.
