A SEARCH involving police and a helicopter has re-launched this morning in a bid to trace a man in connection with a disturbance in the Granny Barbour Road area of Nairn.

The hunt began last night using a search and rescue helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth and Northern Constabulary's police dog unit for the man who is believed to be in 20s.

The helicopter could be seen hovering over Black Park farm in Nairn earlier today.

Rumours on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook stated a firearm was involved in the incident, but police have said these claims are untrue.
