A poignant gathering is set to mark the first anniversary of the disappearance of Glenrothes man Allan Bryant next month.

On Sunday, November 2, it will be 12 months since the 24-year old left Styx in Glenrothes - and was never seen again.

Now his family is to stage a ‘‘public remembrance’’ outside the club to mark the painful anniversary - and keep their missing son in the public spotlight.

Hundreds are expected to attend the early evening candlelit vigil in the car park of the Glenrothes club.

Members of Allan’s family will be there, supported by many local folk who have ralied round to support many campaigns over the past 12 months.

But despite their best efforts, Allan remains missing.

His dad, also Allan, said on his latest video broadcast on the Facebook page set up to try to find the missing man: ‘‘It is going to be emotional - a really, really hard day.’’

With messages from far afield, the family have thanked all who have supported them.

‘‘I have no idea how many people will attend ,’’ said Allan.

‘‘I know many can’t because they are so far away but their support has been fantastic.’’

People attending have been asked to bring a candle for the event which starts at 6.40 p.m.

The police campaign to find Allan has now become the single biggest missing person investigation ever seen in Fife.

Police have used specialist resources including search dogs, divers and the air support unit.
