Two years on since Allan Bryant went missing in Glenrothes, police in Fife are continuing with their investigation to trace him.
The 23-year-old did not return home after a night out at Styx nightclub in Caskieberran Road in the early hours of the 3rd November 2013. He was last seen on CCTV outside the venue at 2am.
Officers still believe the answer to his disappearance lies within the community and remain keen to speak to members of the public who can assist with this inquiry.
To mark the two-year anniversary, a new poster has been created and will be distributed throughout Glenrothes in an effort to gather new information about the night Allan went missing.
Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team has investigated all information received and other specialist resources have assisted local officers to undertake an extensive search of the town and surrounding area, but so far there has been no breakthrough in this investigation.
No evidence has ever been found to suggest any suspicious circumstances during this inquiry. However, anyone who believes they have useful information but has yet to contact police is asked to do so immediately.
Detective Inspector Stuart Wilson said: “Allan’s disappearance has had a devastating effect on his family and we urgently request anyone who can help us trace him to come forward.
“The search and inquiry into Allan’s disappearance continues and we are totally committed to finding him. Throughout our investigation we have been supported and assisted by many of Allan’s family and friends who turned out to help search for Allan.
“We are grateful too that Allan’s family have been supported by so many local people – a testament to the Glenrothes community spirit and the willingness to help.
“We still believe that someone in the local area will have a vital piece of information that can help us bring the Bryant family the answers they crave. We would really like that person to get in touch with us.”
Allan’s father, Allan Bryant Snr has given the following family statement to be included in this new appeal:
"As a parent, it is your worst nightmare to be left in this situation, yet that is the reality my family is dealing with and I can only describe it as a living nightmare.
“Allan is a loving son and brother, his disappearance has left a huge void in our family, which we are struggling to cope with.
"This has been undoubtedly, the most distressing and unsettling period of our lives and we will not rest until we find Allan.
“I would like to make a plea to anyone who knows something to do the right thing and tell the police anything they know. Someone somewhere must know something so please come forward, it only takes one phone call and that one piece of information no matter how small to finally help us find Allan.
"I would also like to thank all of our friends, neighbours and other members of the community for their kind words and support during this time."
