Searches for missing Aberdeenshire man Aivars Kajaks are to be scaled back after police inquiries stalled.
The 44-year-old, who is originally from Latvia, was last seen in Broad Place in Peterhead last month.
Extensive CCTV work, house-to-house enquiries and address checks have been carried out over the past few weeks in an effort to find him.
Searches have been ongoing in Broad Place, the town centre and areas of the coastline, with dive & marine units also carrying out searches in Peterhead Harbour.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police.
Peterhead Inspector George Cordiner said: “A significant amount of our enquiries have been to build a picture of Aivars life in the weeks leading up to and at the time of his disappearance.
“This has helped guide our searches and lead our checks, however despite the extensive amount of work that has taken place so far, we have yet to establish where he now is.
“As more time passes, and with a lack of further information, we need to be realistic and these enquiries will be scaled back as more time passes.
“We will continue to keep an open mind in relation to what has happened to Aivars and I urge anyone with information to get in touch as soon as possible – it is never too late.”
Aivars is described as being around 5’6″ with short brown hair, brown eyes and when he was last seen he was wearing a jacket and blue jeans.
He is known to work odd jobs and he often stays with friends on a short-term basis.
He is also regularly seen in Peterhead town-centre.
Police have handed out three missing person posters in an attempt to find Aivars; one in English, another in Latvian, his native language, and another in Russian, as it’s thought he has a number of friends and acquaintances who speak these languages.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101 quoting incident number 4151 of August 10.
