Officers leading the search for missing Glenrothes man Allan Bryant have reiterated their view that someone within the town holds the vital information that could end the two year search.

As the investigation into his disappearance reached a heartbreaking second anniversary for the family, senior officers still firmly believe the answer ies within the community and have urged members of the public who can assist with their inquiry to come forward and end the anguish.

Allan , 23-years-old at the time he went missing, has not been seen since leaving Styx nightclub in the town in the early hours of Sunday, November 3, 2013.

Despite the biggest ever missing person enquiry ever conducted in Fife and much speculation throughout the town, police are no nearer discovering what happened to him after he left the club.

Detective Inspector Stuart Wilson told the Gazette: “Allan’s disappearance has had a devastating effect on his family and we urgently request anyone who can help us trace him to come forward.

“The search and the inquiry into Allan’s disappearance continues and we are totally committed to finding him. “Throughout our investigation we have been supported and assisted by many of Allan’s family and friends who turned out to help search for Allan.

“We are grateful too that Allan’s family have been supported by so many local people – a testament to the Glenrothes community spirit and the willingness to help.

“We still believe that someone in the local area will have a vital piece of information that can help us bring the Bryant family the answers they crave.

“We would really like that person to get in touch with us.”

Despite an intensive police enquiry, officers say no evidence has ever been found to suggest any suspicious circumstances regarding his disappearance.

“As a parent, it is your worst nightmare to be left in this situation, yet that is the reality my family is dealing with and I can only describe it as a living nightmare,” said Allan’s father, Allan Bryant Snr. (pictured inset).

“Allan is a loving son and brother, his disappearance has left a huge void in our family, which we are struggling to cope with.

“This has been undoubtedly, the most distressing and unsettling period of our lives and we will not rest until we find Allan.’’
