A police underwater team has resumed its search for a Dumfries man reported to have fallen into the River Nith.

Emergency services were first called out on Sunday night, and efforts to trace 41-year-old Bryan Cowie have continued since then.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency and Nith Inshore Rescue rejoined the operation overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.

Police divers have now returned to the area to assist with the search.

A helicopter is also expected to help with efforts to find Mr Cowie.
