Concern is growing over the wellbeing of a missing man from Ayrshire who was last seen over a week ago.
Jackson Mason, from Kilmarnock, has not been in contact with any friends or family over the Christmas period.
The 31-year-old was last seen near a slip on the M77 close to Fenwick Hotel at around 4.15pm on Saturday December 19.
He is described as around 6ft tall with a medium build and dark brown hair.
When he was last seen he had a heavy facial growth and was wearing grey shorts and a shiny black bubble jacket.
Police are again appealing for the public’s assistance as the search for Jackson continues.

“We have been carrying out extensive searches in and around the Fenwick area, with the support of specialist resources, such as a dog unit and the Force helicopter.
“Officers also continue to speak with Jackson’s family and friends, but there has been no further trace of him.
“We are again appealing to anyone who knows of his whereabouts or has heard from him since last weekend to please get in touch.
