Duncan Sim, reported missing two weeks ago in St Andrews

He hasn’t been seen since leaving the rugby club, and over the past two weeks, officers have carried out extensive inquiries, including reviewing CCTV footage, telephony work, door-to-door inquiries and utilising a number of specialist resources.

Duncan, from Duns, is described as a white man, 6ft tall and of medium build, with green eyes and brown hair.

Inspector Karen Muirhead of Fife police, said: “Information now obtained from CCTV images supports him being in the area near to the Eden course shortly after he left Madras Rugby Club.

“He appears to be alone, but it is unclear what direction he left this area in.

“I would again appeal to the public to think back to Wednesday, March 14, and consider if they saw Duncan, or a man matching his description, in the area.”

She added: “We hope that this image jogs someone’s memory and can give us that vital piece of information that we need in order to trace him.

“It has now been two weeks since Duncan was last seen, and we remain extremely concerned for his welfare.

“We continue to keep Duncan’s family updated with our inquiries and any developments.”
