The Westhill Academy pupil is thought to have bought a ticket for Raemoir Road in Banchory and inquiries are continuing in the area.

Chief Inspector Martin Mackay said: “Liam is very tall – around 6ft4in – and walks in a distinctive way so we have been asking for members of the public to get in touch if they remember seeing a young male matching his description.

“I hope that this image of Liam’s bag assists and ask anyone who has spotted a teenager with a similar backpack who might have been Liam to get in touch.

“Likewise, if anyone finds this bag please contact the police as soon as possible.”
