Renewed appeal and new images of missing Buckie man

Police have issued new images of the missing Buckie man Ian Bramald along with a renewed appeal over the whereabouts of the 73-year-old Alzheimer’s sufferer.

Mr Bramald, who is originally from Yorkshire but has been living in Buckie for the last year, has not been seen since leaving home eight days ago.

An extensive search was launched assisted by the SAR unit at RAF Lossiemouth, Coastguards and over 100 volunteer members of the public. However, that search was tailed back when it failed to find any sign of Mr Bramaid.

Leading the search is Inspector Colin Mowat of Police Scotland, who said: “We would ask peole to look at the new photographs giving particular consideration to the clothing.

“We are still deeply concerned to trace Mr Bramald and as time goes on we are growing increasingly anxious. Significant resources have been deployed to this inquiry including the Police Scotland helicopter and RAF Lossiemouth’s search and rescue helicopter, HM Coastguard volunteers, specials search dogs and RAF Mountain Rescue.

“We have also been absolutely overwhelmed with the support of the public.

“Anybody with information regarding the whereabouts of Mr Bramald or who believes they may recognise his description is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.”

Mr Brmald is described as being 5ft 10inches to 6ft with dark hair receding at the top. When last seen he was wearing a short green waterproof jacket, corduroy trousers, a cap and glasses.
