A renewed attempt to put the search for missing Glenrothes man Allan Bryant before a national TV audience has gained widespread public support.
An online petition started this month has already gained over 5000 signatures to support the call for Police Scotland to help the family get the case of Allan’s disappearance featured on the popular BBC programme Crimewatch.
Allan, 23 at the time of his disappearance, has not been seen since he left Styx nightclub in the town in the early hours of November 3, 2013.
Allan’s father, Allan Snr, said that having his son’s case featured by a national broadcaster could trigger new lines of enquiry for the police.
“We have requested that Police Scotland support us in this and have significant public backing,” he said.
“The support has been overwhelming and follows on from a similar petition which recently received over 5000 signatures.
Mr Bryant Snr has been heavily critical of the police’s lack of progress in recent times following what the force say has been the largest missing persons enquiry ever undertaken in Fife.
