A person could be missing as emergency crews have found abandoned camping gear in Angus.
A single-person tent, sleeping bag, kayak, wetsuit and some other smaller items were found unattended in an area near Auchmithie Beach, Arbroath around 4.30am on Monday.
The cove is between Auchmithie and Lunan Bay – specifically Prail Castle and Redhead on the map.
Police said that it is only accessible from the water or by abseiling down the cliff edge.
A search of the area was carried out by HM Coastguard and RNLI and the items have since been recovered.
Inspector Grace Ewing of Forfar Police Station said: “Our enquiries into this recovery are ongoing and I would urge anyone who may have any information to come forward.
“No one has been reported missing to us at this time but if this equipment is yours, if you know who it belongs to or you saw anyone kayaking in the area over the course of the past weekend please get in touch.
“Anyone who can help is asked to call 101, quoting reference 0666 of May 1.”
