Missing Colin Arnot

Extensive searches and inquiries to find the 54-year-old North Roe resident had been carried out following his disappearance. He was reported missing a week ago on Monday night.

Police Scotland have thanked the public for their assistance in the search for him. They have released no further details.

Searches had also been underway for his green Mitsubishi Shogun four-by-four.

The Sumburgh-based coastguard helicopter had been part of the operation. It carried out a search during daylight hours of the North Mainland last Tuesday, although no further coastguard searches were requested by police.

Mr Arnot is known for keeping alpacas, having brought the animals up to the isles with his wife almost four years ago.

He also stood unsuccessfully as a candidate in last year’s SIC elections in the Shetland North ward.
