Sergeant Kieran Dougal said: "We would also appeal to anyone in the Erskine bridge area at that time who may have dash-cam footage or who may have been cycling and have a ‘Go Pro’ camera to get in touch."

The student’s family said: "If Rufus sees this, we don’t want him to be concerned about being in any trouble.

"We just want him to know how much we love him and miss him and that we desperately want him home safe and well."

If anyone has any information regarding Rufus they should contact the police dialling 101, quoting the reference 1477 of Sunday 6 October.
