Police are appealing to members of the public for information and officers are hoping to trace the occupants of a blue Audi seen in the area at the time of the incident. They say that they and other motorists or pedestrians could have information that could help the investigation.

Sergeant Gordon Dickson of scotland[2]>Police Scotland[3] said that even if someone has some details that they believe are not “significant”, they should still get in touch. “Our inquiries so far have established a blue Audi A3 car was travelling on the opposite roadway (and) passed at the time the incident occurred, and I would ask the occupants of that car to contact us,” he said.

“Their information could aid in our investigation. I would also ask any other members of the public or motorists who were in the area at the time to get in touch with us with any information they may have, even if it doesn’t seem significant, let us be the judge of that.” He added: “Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1330 of Saturday February 24.”
