The family of a teenager who has been missing since the weekend have spoken of their desperation to find him and get him home safely.

Liam Smith, who was reported missing from Aberdeen, is known to have travelled on a 202 Stagecoach bus service from the city to Lumphanan on Saturday.

The 16-year-old boarded at Union Square bus station at 1.11pm and disembarked in the Aberdeenshire village at 2.44pm.

His mother Alix Smith said: “It is now been three days since we last saw Liam and we are completely shocked and devastated by his disappearance.

“We are so worried about him and really anxious to find him and take him home.

“If Liam sees this message I don’t want him to be concerned about being in any trouble. I just want to find him.

“I would ask that if anyone has heard from Liam since Saturday or they saw him on the bus he took, or where he went after he got off the bus in Lumphanan please, please, please, phone the police and give them any information you have.”

“We are desperate to find him and we are becoming increasingly concerned as time goes on,” she added.

Police are urging anyone who was on the bus or who lives in Lumphanan and may have seen Liam to get in touch with them.

He is white, 6ft 4in and of slim build with short brown hair.

When last seen, he was wearing a dark top, blue jeans and Nike Air Max trainers, and is also understood to be carrying a camouflage North Face backpack.

Chief Inspector Martin Mackay said: “Specialist searches have been carried out in the Lumphanan area today which have included the use of the police helicopter.

“We are continuing to urge anyone with information to come forward and we would particularly ask anyone who was driving in the Lumphanan area on Saturday November 17, and may have dash cam footage to contact us.

“We would also appeal to anyone who may have been cycling and have a ‘Go Pro’ camera or was walking in the area to get in touch.

“Naturally Liam’s family is extremely concerned and we just want to trace him as soon as possible to ensure he is safe and well.”
