Inspector Graeme Moir said: "Bob has been missing for a week now and we are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

"He is known to travel throughout the Grampian area, sometimes further afield, often sleeping rough.

"We believe he may have travelled to the Edinburgh area in the last week using public transport.

"The particularly cold weather is a concern and Bob may not be equipped to deal with the snow.

"I am asking members of the public to check any outbuildings such as sheds or garages they have in case he may have sought shelter from the weather.

Anyone who may have seen Bob or has any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 0812 of 31 March.
