He was cycling an orange bicyle and was later spotted around 7.15pm on September 1 at the Spar store on Barn Church Road in Culloden.

Grzegorz is described as 6ft 1in, muscular build, with short, brown hair. When he was last seen, he was wearing a black beanie hat, green jacket, orange trousers and was carrying a black backpack.

Chief inspector Judy Hill said: “A significant amount of time has now passed since we have a confirmed sighting of Grzegorz and we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare. It is also out of character for him to be out of contact with family and friends for such an extended period.

“We would urge anyone who believes they may have seen or heard from him at any time since September 1 to get in touch.

“It is possible that he may have attempted to wild camp or seek some other form of shelter so anyone who has seen anything unusual which they believe may be of use to our investigation is asked to come forward.

“Anyone who can help can call 101, quoting incident 2722 of September 4.”
