Police to hold Buckie public meeting to discuss missing pensioner

Police in Buckie will take the unusual step of making a public presentation on their efforts to trace a pensioner who has been missing from his home since February.

73-year-old Ian Bramald was last seen two miles south of his home in the town at 9.30am on February 26, sparking a search throughout the Moray and Aberdeenshire countryside.

The search including Police and RAF helicopters while members of the public turned out in their hundreds to aid the hunt for Mr Bramald, who suffers from dementia and has been living in Moray for several years after moving from Yorkshire.

With several months having passed and still no sign of what happened Police have assured the family and public that they are continuing in their efforts to trace Mr Bramald. This evening (Wednesday) officers will give a public presentation on the search so far at the Highfield Hall at Buckie Community High School.

The presentation will begin at 7pm and last around one hour, during which officers will explain the work and police activity carried out in the search – anyone who wishes to attend will be made very welcome.

Mr Bramald is described as approximately 5ft 10ins to 6ft in height, with dark/greying hair which is receding on top. When he was last seen he was wearing a short green waterproof jacket, corduroy trousers, a cap and glasses.

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