    Duncan is described as a white man, 6ft tall, and of medium build. He has brown hair, green eyes and was last seen wearing a grey-coloured suit jacket, white shirt and a blue and white tie.

    Needless to say, since St Andrews is on the coast, there's a lot of water around the city.

    No major rivers nearby, but the sea is only 300m away.

    To add to that, his halls of residence is also 300m away but in the opposite direction from the rugby club, should have been a 5 minute walk home.

    Its believed he may have walked the opposite direction from the town, that would have him heading towards the Guardbridge road (from station road), theres a cycle path that runs to Guardbridge alongside the main road (but behind a hedge) and there are various farm tracks leading down to the estuary that has sinking sand etc ( i know, i sunk in it years ago).
    If he got to the end of station road and decided to cross to the halls of residence ( Andrews Melville or Agnes Blackadder) he would have to go through a small wood, theres also a pond there.
    If he started towards Guardbridge then changed his mind after a while and crossed the road heading back to town trying a short cut through fields he may have become disorientated as again theres woods between the fields and halls of residence.

    The problem is, the cycle track is fairly well used, if hed gone to the estuary or even Eden stables i feel he would have been found by now as stables are busy and they horse ride along the estuary.

    I think he may be somewhere between the halls of residence and the Balgove Larder or in that sort of area, i cant see how he would have been missed anywhere else.

    Dont know if any of the above is usefull but just thought id share my thoughts.

    I really dont know if the pond has been checked, id presume so as its yards from the halls of residence. I know theres plenty of police and volunteers out searching but im mainly getting snippets from my Facebook newsfeed.

    Another thought would be the cow shed in the field between the pond and the Balgove Larder?.

    Also, what’s the clearing area in the middle of the woods (between pond and halls) with a few sheds/skips in? And the building immediately south of Belgove Larder with (what looks like) lawned gardens and a marquee?

    Unsure what the clearing is, looks like maintenance buildings, dump spot if i remember crrectly?, lawned gardens and marquee may be the big house up behind the Balgove Larder or may be for functions at the Balgove Larder.
    On satellite image you can see the cow shed in the field in front of the marquee.

    Also a bit of useless info, the trees between the main road and halls of residence is a Heronry.

    I am from this area too, I work in and around St Andrews, I have literally heard nothing apart from what is in the papers etc and I'm amazed at the amount of people who know nothing about it.

    Im hearing theres a room at the old course sealed off?, may be in halls of residence but im sure its the old course, its rumour of course.
    Its being said that he left the rugby club and went with a lass to the old course, there was a party (drug party), theres a room sealed off, people that had room have disappeared leaving everything behind, all rooms in either halls of residence or hotel have been searched.
    Thats what i was personally told in a call, it was 3rd/4th hand info mind you.

    Its also been in the paper that the search is being scaled back.
