Police say they are continuing to carry out extensive searches for a man last seen in Dundee a week ago.

Allan Smeaton, 49, was last seen in the Whitfield area of Dundee at around 3am on Saturday March 28.

He was carrying an orange plastic bag at the time.

A spokesperson said: "Concerns are growing for Alan’s welfare and we would urge anyone who may have seen him, or know of his whereabouts to call us on 101 or speak with any police officer. Our reference is incident 2990 of March 28."

Officers have been asking people to check sheds and outbuildings, while they have been searching fields in the area. A police helicopter was spotted hovering overhead earlier in the week.
