Police are appealing for help to trace a Dunfermline man who has been missing since Monday.
James Parker was last seen on James Street, near to the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, at around 6:45pm on October 19.
The 32-year-old had agreed to visit a relative’s home on Adamson Crescent that evening but failed to arrive.
He has not been in touch with his family since and officers are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.
An extensive investigation is under way and anyone who has information on his whereabouts is asked to come forward.
James is described as 5ft 10ins tall, stocky build, dark brown hair with a small bald patch on his crown, and a large scab on his face and neck.
At the time of his disappearance he may have been wearing jeans, a blue sweatshirt and carrying a blue Nike rucksack.
Inspector Ian Flynn said: “It is unusual for James not to be in touch with friends or family for this length of time and I am today urging anyone who has relevant information on his whereabouts to come forward immediately.
“We know that James had intended to visit a family member at a property in the town’s Adamson Crescent on Monday night but he never arrived.
“It goes without saying that we are extremely keen to trace him safe and well and again I ask anyone who has information, no matter how small it may seem, to call police on 101 or speak to any officer.
“I also appeal to James directly to please contact police or a friend or family member to let us know that you are safe.”
