The family of missing Glenrothes man Allan Bryant have organised an awareness walk this weekend to keep the 21-year-old’s disappearance in the public eye.

Allan’s father, Allan Snr, has asked supporters to meet at noon on Saturday outside Styx nightclub, the last place his son was seen alive.

From there they will hold a peaceful demonstration as they walk to the police station on Napier Road, Glenrothes.

Allan Snr said: “As a family we have been discussing further ways to continue to keep Allan in the public eye and to put extra pressure on the police so they continue searching for my son Allan.

“This demonstration will also prove how much the community is behind our family.

“Thank you all for supporting our family.”

Last month Mr Bryant met with Inspector Derek Paxton, who is handling the community aspect of the missing persons enquiry.

Inspector Paxton said the investigation into Allan’s disappearance had not thrown up any suggestion of foul play and that local police officers continue to follow possible lines of enquiry.

The Bryant family have been critical of the police and what they see as a lack of progress by the initial investigation and are considering lodging a formal complaint.

Mr Bryant Snr is also calling for a direct number, rather than the general 101 contact number to be set up to speed up the process of handling potential leads.

Last week the Bryant family made the decision to raise the reward for information that leads to Allan being found to £3,000.
