A Coastguard helicopter and RNLI lifeboat have been involved in a search for a missing Inverness man.

Adam Mitchell is believed to have been in a pub in Inverness' Baron Taylor Street on Wednesday night.

Police Scotland said CCTV images show him near the Harry Fairbairn BMW garage on Longman Road at 00:52 on Thursday.

Police have already been making searches in Inverness. The helicopter and Kessock lifeboat crews have been searching the nearby Beauly Firth.

Family and friends said Mr Mitchell's failure to return to his home in the Culduthel area was out of character.
