Two months after his disappearance, the family of Glenrothes man Allan Bryant have reaffirmed their commitment to find the missing 24-year-old.
After a difficult Christmas and New Year holiday, Allan’s father has recorded a new video thanking people for their support – and vowing to keep looking for his son.
Mr Bryant said he has taken comfort and strength from the messages of support he has received as the search continues.
He said: “We’re really going to get back on track again, There is no way in this world are we going to give up the search for Allan.
“The next push (effort) is going to be bigger than the last one.
“The support we have received has really touched every one of our hearts.
“I get my strength from people’s comments and what they say to us.
“But like any parent in this situation – it’s not where you get your strength, it’s what you have got to do that matters.
“You can’t give in and you can’t stop.”
The community has rallied round the Bryant family to support them in their search.
More than 60,000 missing persons posters were distributed around the town and in towns throughout Fife and around £1000 has been donated to the family to help with their efforts.
The family plans to use the money as a reward for information on Alan’s whereabouts.
A poster of Allan was beamed on the giant screens at Celtic Park at half time during the recent Celtic v Hibernian match.
The video from Allan’s father has been posted on the Find Allan Bryant jnr! facebook page.
Police Scotland are continuing their search for Allan who has not been seen since 2.00 a.m. on Sunday, November 3, 2013.
The last positive sighting of Allan was outside Styx nightclub on Caskieberran Road, Glenrothes, when he was wearing a striped t-shirt and dark denim jeans.
Officers were drafted in from across central Scotland to help with the search which also involved two police helicopters and specialist underwater search teams.
