The father of Allan Bryant has said he has been reassured that the police are not going to give up the search for his missing son.

And Allan Bryant Snr dismissed suggestions that any form of protest should be made about how the police have handled the search for the missing 24-year-old.

His comments came in the latest video he posted on Facebook, where he admitted how difficult the current situation is for the family to deal with.

“Some people have said they want to make a public protest outside the police station – I’m not going to allow this and I am not going to let this happen,” Mr Bryant said.

“We are not going to give up in the search for Allan.

“The last two weeks have really drained me. It is getting harder and harder to go on Facebook.

“We are trying to get things moving in the right direction and after meeting with the police – they are not going to give up.

“The local community and the public have been absolutely amazing.

“We don’t want people turning against us because of something stupid like protesting outside a police station.

“That is not the way to go.

“Sometimes, it is quite difficult reading some comments but I want to thank people for their support; it means everything.”

Allan Bryant Jnr has not been seen since 2.00 a.m. on Sunday, November 3, when he was spotted outside the Styx nightclub on Caskieberran Road, Glenrothes.

He was wearing a striped t-shirt and dark denim jeans.

Police officers were drafted in from across central Scotland for the search, which included two police helicopters and specialist underwater search teams.
