Search for missing man last seen on New Year’s Eve

A search is underway for a missing man who has not been seen since New Year’s Eve.

Anthony Rodgers, from Elgin, was reported missing on Tuesday and has not been in touch with friends or family since.

Officers in Moray are carrying out enquires in their bid to trace the 57-year-old who was seen cycling on the B9011 road from Forres into Kinross at around 10.05pm.

Inspector Michael McKenzie of Buckie South West Street Station said: “Antony’s bike is quite distinctive.  It has a black frame with blue flashes and ‘Muddy Fox’ in white letters on the side.  It has panniers on the rear and has his name written on the frame.

“As the days pass, concern is growing for his wellbeing and safety.  He has not been missing before and it is extremely out of character for him not to be in touch with his family and friends. 

“Searches are continuing in the Forres area and local officers are being assisted by a specialist search advisor and police dogs have also been used in searches.”

“Antony is described as white, 5ft 11 inches in height and of medium build with a distinctive scar on his jaw.   

“Anyone who has seen Antony, or who has any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Police Scotland.”
