New appeals as families of missing men prepare for anniversary

The families of two Glenrothes men who went missing on the same date, fifteen years apart, have renewed appeals for their loved ones.

Kenneth Jones and Allan Bryant both disappeared on November 3, in 1998 and 2013 respectively.

The fresh appeal comes as The Courier prepares to delve back into the Bryant case featuring special video interviews with family and police.

Mr Jones, who was aged 18 at the time of his disappearance, was last seen leaving his home in the town’s Ancrum Court at around 7.30am.

He never returned, and 18 years on there remains no trace of Kenneth and no clues as to what has become of him.

As the charity Missing People launch a new appeal to the public for information relating to his disappearance, Kenneth’s mother Mary Ann said: “I miss him.

“It doesn’t matter what’s happened in the past, I just want for him to come home.”

Kenneth is described as white, 6ft 2ins tall, with short dark brown hair.
He was last seen wearing a black blouson style leather jacket with zipped front, black jeans, yellow and green trainers and he was carrying a small black/blue rucksack.

“All these years I’ve looked for Kenneth up and down Britain and I’ll never stop looking for him until I find out what happened to him,” Kenneth Jones’ aunt, May Dodds, said.

“If anyone knows anything please get in touch with Missing People.

“I just hope he is safe, healthy and happy and for him to let us know he’s okay.”

Meanwhile, the family of Allan Bryant Jr are preparing to mark the third anniversary of the disappearance of their son.

Aged 23 when he disappeared following a night out at Styx Nightclub in Caskieberran Road, there remains no trace of him to this day, despite the largest missing person search in Fife’s history.

His father, Allan Sr, said: “Someone must have seen Allan that night.

“Some of his friends were still present at the nightclub when he was last seen.

“My family just want anyone that knows anything to come forward.

“All it takes is one phone call to the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or Missing People on 116 000.

“It’s been three years now our family have suffered this pain.

“Please end this nightmare for our family.”
