Police have launched a search of a property in Fife as part of the three year investigation into the disappearance of Allan Bryant.

The 23-year-old went missing after a night out at Styx nightclub in his home town of Glenrothes on 3 November 2013.

His parents have repeatedly stated they believe he has been murdered and that his killer is at large.

Police are searching a house in Barnton Place, Glenrothes. His father said he hopes the search yields answers.

Allan Bryant Sr told BBC Scotland: "My family have been waiting for something like this for a long, long time. We just hope there are some answers at the end of it.

"All we want to do is find out what has happened to our son Allan and get the closure we actually need, which we have been fighting for for over three and a half years.

"The only thing that matters to us is actually finding out what has happened to Allan."
