The emergency services are resuming a search for a man reported to have been seen in the River Tay at Perth.
A full-scale search swung into action on Monday evening after a member of the public contacted the Coastguard to report the sighting of a man in the water, near Queen’s Bridge.
The man is believed to be a vulnerable 20-year-old named Iain Guthrie from Perth, who was reported missing at 9.50pm last night.
A statement from Police Scotland said: “He is described as being about 5 feet 9 inches tall, of slim build with short black coloured hair and brown eyes. When last seen in Dundee Road, Perth at about 8.50pm he was wearing a dark green fleece top, dark blue jeans and dark coloured walking shoes.
“Anyone who knows Iain, or anyone who saw a man matching his description in city centre area or near the River Tay last night is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
HM Coastguard, police, fire and ambulance services are all involved in the operation but no trace of the man has been found.
The Coastguard helicopter was called in to help with Monday night’s search.
On Tuesday the helicopter left base at Prestwick at 9.49am and resumed its search near Newburgh.
