The family of a missing teenager are growing concerned for his safety after he disappeared in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Danny Bell has been reported missing from the Invergordon area and it is believed he may have travelled by bus to Inverness.

He is described as white, 5ft 6in height, of slim build and has dark close-cropped hair. It is not known what he is wearing.
Sergeant Claire MacKenzie, Alness Police Station, said: “Danny requires to take daily medication which we don’t believe he has with him, hence our and his family’s concern for him.
“Although we have no information that he has left the Invergordon area, he has previously travelled by bus to Inverness and so we have been liaising with local bus companies should they come across him.
“So far, no one has seen or heard from him since he left home.
“If you have any information as to where he is, then please contact Police Scotland on 101 or via the Contact Us Form on our website, quoting incident number 0551 of Tuesday, October 10.
“We’d also appeal to Danny himself to return home or contact police. We all just want to make sure that he is safe and well.”
