Police searching for a missing Monifieth man say a distinctive bicycle he may be travelling on could hold the key to tracing him.
Christopher Chapman was last seen at his home at around noon on Tuesday and concern is growing for his welfare.
Police have made a further public appeal to help trace the 63-year-old who has now been missing for over 24 hours.
A keen runner and cyclist, he may be using his cream coloured Carrera pedal cycle with black wheels.
Christopher is described as 5ft 10in tall, of medium build, has grey hair which is receding and a grey moustache.
