He is thought to have driven his black Toyota Yaris car – registration plate SF14 DCT – to Carsebridge Road in Alloa.

He then left his car and walked in the direction of Jellyholm Road and Gartmorn Dam.

He is described as being around 6ft with a medium build, and short grey hair.

He was wearing a yellow long-sleeved high-vis jacket, blue jeans and was carrying a dark coloured rucksack at the time of his disappearance.

Police say they have conducted “extensive enquiries” but he has not yet been traced.

It is understood that Mr Wessels has links to Brighton, The Falkland Isles, St Andrews and Aberdeen.

Inspector Phil McIntosh, from Police Scotland, said: “We are very concerned about Kenneth and we would urge anyone with information that hasn’t already been reported to police to get in touch.

“Extensive enquiries are ongoing and we are keeping Kenneth’s family informed as our search continues.

“I would like to thank everyone who has helped so far in our efforts to trace Kenneth.

“Anyone who has any information regarding his whereabouts should contact Police Scotland on 101.”
