Police are appealing for information in the search for a missing man from England.

Umar Kahn, 24, is believed to have travelled from Glasgow to Aberdeen, arriving around 2.50pm on Tuesday, August 23.

He was last seen in the Cove area, specifically the Torry to Cove coast road at around 2pm on Thursday, August 25.

He is described as being of slim build with dark hair.

When last seen he was wearing a light coloured hoodie, blue jeans, white trainers, white jacket and was carrying a black rucksack.

Inspector George Nixon said: “Extensive searches are ongoing to find Umar who has links to both Leicester and London but no known connections in the Aberdeenshire area. Concern for his welfare is increasing.

“I would ask anyone who was on the Flixbus Service from Glasgow that arrived in Aberdeen on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 23, and saw or talked to Umar to get in touch as you may have information that can help with our enquiries. We are keen to find out where he went after arriving in the city.

“We believe he was in the area of the coast road and path between Torry and Cove and are keen to speak to anyone walking or driving in that area between around 11am on Thursday, 25 August, and 2pm that day.

“In addition, given that Umar has no known links to the Aberdeenshire area, I am also asking anyone who knows Umar to get in touch. It is vital that we find out if he may have travelled on to another part of Scotland or to England. We just want to make sure he is safe and well.

“Our enquiries to find him are ongoing and officers will be around the coast road area. If you have any information that could assist please speak to them or call us on 101, quoting reference number 1893 of Thursday, August 25, 2022.”
