In an emotional Facebook post, Mr Finnie wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that we received news today that the police have reached the end of their search for our boy after exhausting all avenues to no avail.
“As Dean hasn’t been seen on any CCTV, or anywhere else without using a phone or bank cards since he left his house heading for the Promenade (just 30 meters away), there is a strong suspicion. that it somehow ended up in the Firth.
“Although extensive air and sea searches have been carried out both on the east coast and in Fife with the help of the oceanographer, no evidence has been seen to confirm this.
A VERY SAD DAY THAT WILL HAUNT US FOREVER
“But this remains the leading thought. Dean is now officially listed as ‘Missing Presumed Dead’. The case will remain open but no further action will be taken unless more evidence is presented.”
“Clearly this is a huge milestone for us and being devastated doesn’t cover how we feel. We are taking this news and accepting the fact that it is a good possibility of what could have happened, but we are always aware that there are other possibilities as well.” .
“Maybe what happened will come to light one day or maybe we’ll never know. A very sad day that will haunt us forever.”
