At the time of his disappearance Reece was dressed in just a T-shirt and black jogging trousers.

Police said they were extremely worried for his safety given the cold temperatures and his lack of warm clothes.

Sergeant Lindsay Brown of Blairgowrie Police Station told the Daily Record: “Reece was camping with his friends on the shore of Loch Rannoch.

“He was last seen around 11.30pm on Saturday evening and they believed he was heading to bed.

“However there was no trace of him on Sunday morning and he was reported missing.

“We are extremely concerned for his safety as he is not dressed for the cold weather and he is not familiar with the area.

“Searches are enquiries are ongoing to trace him as soon as possible to ensure that he is safe and well.”
