***Update 2nd November 2017***
Allan Bryant was last seen outside Styx nightclub in Caskieberran Road in Glenrothes just after 2am on 3rd November 2013. The 27-year-old is still missing and police inquiries to try to trace him are actively ongoing.
Detective Inspector Stuart Wilson is leading the investigation into Allan's disappearance.
"The investigation into the circumstances around Allan’s disappearance continues. My team has followed up a number of new pieces of information over the past 12 months but these unfortunately have not provided the answers we are seeking for his family and friends, and so I'm disappointed that we still have no answers on the fourth anniversary of his disappearance.
"We remain in regular contact with Allan's family, updating them on our work as it progresses.
"I'm heartened at the response that we have had from both the local community in continuing to support the Bryant family, and the general public who have continued to come forward with information. Since last November we have carried out various inquiries including a large-scale search assisted by numerous specialists, and we will continue to assess, evaluate and action anything new which comes in that might assist our investigation.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to appeal once more for anyone who might have seen Allan after he left Styx, or might have information on his whereabouts, to come forward. There remains no evidence of criminality and there is no evidence that Allan is no longer alive, and I would assure anyone who might be able to help that their information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
"Calls can be made to 101 quoting Operation Toner, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Emails can also be sent to OperationToner@scotland.pnn.police.uk. A small piece of information that someone may feel is insignificant could be key to finding Allan so I would urge people to please, think back to four years ago and contact my team if you can help."
***Update 2nd November 2015***
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."
