“I’d urge anyone who recognises him, or has any information on his whereabouts, to contact us.”

It comes after an alleged disturbance at the same address on April 19.

One hour later officers were then called to Henryson Road, Dunfermline, at around 4.30pm - less than five miles away. Police are treating the two incidents as linked.

A 46-year-old man and 25-year-old man were later traced and taken by ambulance to hospital. Investigations are ongoing into the incident. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 2163 of 19 April.
