A search is underway for a missing from Fife who has not been seen in two days.
Concern is growing for Mark Dickson who was last seen leaving his home on Niven Road, Inverkeithing, at around 1.20pm on Thursday.
The 53-year-old has not been in touch with any friends or family since and police are urging to public to pass on any relevant information or sightings.
Mr Dickson, who is a keen hillwalker, was driving a silver Ford Focus Estate with roof bars attached and the registration number plate HY64 ZYV.
Officers are appealing to those outwith Fife as they believe he may have travelled and is known to frequent places such as Killin, Ben Lawers, Glencoe, Callander and Strathyre and Kinloch Rannoch.
He is described as being around 5ft8 with a shaved head and when last seen he was wearing a black waist length waterproof jacket, black walking trousers and grey and yellow coloured Salomon walking shoes.
Inspector Kim Stuart said,“Whilst we are still keeping an open mind to where Mark may have gone, we are now looking to appeal to those further afield as it is possible he has left Fife.
“We know he stopped at a fuel station near to his home shortly after he left home, however he has not been seen or heard from since.
“He is known to go hillwalking across Scotland and has a number of favourite places such as Killin, Ben Lawers, Glencoe, Callander and Strathyre and Kinloch Rannoch.
“Mark is not equipped for hillwalking and as time goes on we are growing increasingly concerned for him.
“Please think back, have you seen a man matching his description? Have you seen the car parked up anywhere? It is fairly distinctive with roof bars.
“Mark, if you see this appeal – please get in touch, your family are worried and just want you home.”
