Chief Inspector Kevin Macleod said : “It is almost two weeks since Finn went missing and his family remain greatly concerned.
“It is obvious from the response we have had that there is great concern in the community for Finn’s well-being.
“Since Finn was reported missing, a number of searches have been carried out by local officers who have been assisted by our colleagues in Operational Support Division and the Air Support Unit, along with our
partner agencies. This will continue over the weekend in effort to locate him.
“I ask that if you were walking in the area and hills between Altnaharra and Golspie recently to get in touch with us. It is possible you have a piece of information that could help progress our enquiries.
“I would like to thank the public for the tremendous support they have given so far.
“Anyone who may have seen Finn is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 or speak to any officer quoting reference 0912 of 28 March.”
