    Police have issued a poster appealing for information on a missing Fife man, who disappeared in November.

    Mr Bryant, 24, was last seen outside the Styx nightclub in Glenrothes on 3 November 2013.

    Ch Insp Derek McEwan, of Police Scotland, said: "This is one of the largest missing person searches ever conducted in Fife and has seen specialist resources including helicopter, divers and search dogs used.

    "We would ask everyone who has any type of outdoor structure in their garden or land to check it again, even if they have already done so, and to regularly check it for any sign of Allan.

    I have in-laws who live in this area - it really isn't somewhere you'd want your family to live, to be honest.

    In fact, my husband is visiting them this weekend - I'll get him to ask around, see if there is anything new to add.

    Glenrothes os ok, low crime rate, most people work, predominately farm work.
    Not known as an area to avoid. Not a high salary area but has a huge tight knit
    community.
    Has lots of council houses but no way is a slum!. Working class families, who live in a semi rural,area.
    Children,are free range walk to school, play in the parks and streets without adults,

    To me the most worrying thing about the location is not if it's a safe area, but how close Styx nighclub in Victoria St is to the water. :(

    Sure 5 miles away is the North Sea, very tidal, tends to deposit people on Tayport and Kinshaldy beach, way the tidal area is. Water swirls around east coast leaves to left when it lets go of people it has claimed

    That's not the Glenrothes I know!

    There are 5 industrial estates, no farms/farm work of any significance. Its known as "The drugs capital of Fife", and there is alot of crime - theft/robbery, stabbings and assaults, drug dealing. There are certainly slum areas - and lots of drug related deaths - and it isn't semi rural, certainly not the area this man went missing from.

    For example:

    and

    and another one:

    or simply have a look at Glenrothes Police Twitter account!

    Maybe you just lived in a posher area than my in laws!!

    Your're correct, it was ok 30 years ago. My husband left around 15 years ago, as he said there was no future for people his age, and the place was going downhill fast.

    Since then, he has heard that loads of his former school friends and neighbours have died from drugs, fighting and, in some cases, even murder. Others are in prison for doing those things. He's not 40 yet, and its shocking how many of them have died due to their lifestyle.

    Back to the case in question, he told me that apparently 2 other men disappeared from nights out (separate incidents) after Allan Bryant did, and both were found deceased in water, as is so often the case in situations like this.

    Thanks for making this thread Sunrisenow, i was hoping someone would. There really isnt a lot of information to go on apart from he was last seen at styx nightclub.
    Anyone know where his home address or area is in Glenrothes.

    I stayed in Glenrothes for a few years, (still go regularly), first just a couple of streets away from Styx at Dunvegan Ct and then just down the road from Styx in the Macedonia area and ive got to say, Glenrothes is no worse than any other town of similar size in the uk concerning drugs and violence etc, in fact theres not an area of Glenrothes i wouldnt go, its really not that bad.
    I used to walk through the town park at night coming back from walking the dog.
    But in saying all of the above, just like most other places, there is some nasty mofos, i can think of one i know of that would be capable of murder but i cant find if hes been released from prison yet?.

    Also i now live in St Andrews, all golf, tourists and university and yet we have Fifes only unsolved murder, 'Sandy Drummond', and students aside, you wouldnt believe the amont of drugs in this wee town.

    I heard that is the assumption going around.

    Mods, I have the background story as to why the parents believe he has been murdered, and a situation which adds to this theory. I know this from relatives of mine who live on the same estate.

    I won't say anything on here, but if one of you (Mods) wants to pm me, I can share with you, and if you think its okay to publish, then I can do.
