Police Scotland officers are today continuing to make enquiries into the whereabouts of Terence Kilbride (48) and have been encouraged by a number of potential sightings from the public.
Inspector Christine Gordon said: “We have had an excellent response from the public following the appeal we made yesterday to trace Terence.
“We have had a number of calls from members of the public who report that they have seen a person matching Terence’s description in both the Bridge of Dee area in Aberdeen and also in the Deeside area in Aberdeenshire.
“We are currently following up all of the sightings reported to us.
“We are encouraged by the information we have received however we are still anxious to trace Terence. I would appeal that if anyone remembers seeing a man matching Terence’s description that they call us.
“Police Scotland divers were out yesterday (Tuesday 5 January 2016) in the Bridge of Dee area and officers have today been following up on the sightings we’ve been made aware of so far.
“Terence is known to go camping and spend time outdoors and it is thought he may have recently been camping in the Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire areas. We also believe Terence may be using a bicycle.
“If you have any information which may help us trace Terence please contact us on 101. We would also appeal to Terence himself to contact us directly so we can establish his safety and welfare.”
Terence Kilbride is originally from the Warrington area and is described as 6ft tall with short dark greying hair and blue eyes.
