Missing Scot’s family disavows Anonymous video

anonThe family of a missing Scot have disavowed a video from Anonymous which threatens the Scottish police with cyber attacks for not doing enough to find him.

The video accuses the police investigators in the Allan Bryant case of failing to effectively investigate the case. However Bryant’s family have said that while the video did represent their views about Police Scotland not doing enough, they were shocked by the way it ended because they’re actually threatening police officers in Glenrothes.

.ryant’s father, also called Allan told the Daily Record: “I’ll not condone anything that threatens violence towards any police officers. It’s not the right way to go about things. I don’t want anyone threatening police officers in my son’s name.”

Bryant was last seen on 3 November 2013, outside a nightclub in Fife. A CCTV footage of him leaving the Styx Nightclub in Glenrothes was the last known sighting of the missing Scot, who his family now believe has been murdered.

The threatening video posted accused police investigators of “failing the Bryant family and went on to threaten the police by saying: “This is a message to Police Scotland. We are aware of your lack of cooperation with the family of missing man Allan Bryant junior. This is a warning to Police Scotland and particularly the Glenrothes Police headquarters — should you not to more to have the culprits that have harmed Allan Bryant junior brought to justice then we are going to initiate our very own justice against you and your officers.”

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police in Fife have been made aware of a communication that suggests reprisals towards officers in Glenrothes. The safety of the public and our officers is an absolute priority. Inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding this and respond appropriately.”

Police Scotland added that the Allan Bryant missing person search “remains the largest ever conducted within Fife” and is still an ongoing investigation. The police have also appealed to the public to come forward with any information regarding Bryant’s whereabouts or movements after his departure from the Styx Nightclub.
