Sergeant Nicola Young said: “The man had no identification documents on him and so far his identity remains unknown.

“We have made extensive enquiries to try and establish who the man may be and it is believed he could have links to Cupar and may have been in Perth on Wednesday.

“The man is described as white, has a brown, greying short beard and has brown/sandy coloured hair.

“He was wearing a black fleece with a yellow collar that had an embroidered National Geographic crest logo on the left.

“He was also wearing black dress trousers and white Nike shoes.

“He was riding a mountain bike with a white frame.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the description of the man to get in touch with us.

“If you have information, no matter how small you think it may be, please call us.”
