Sergeant Stephen Quinn said: “Trag­i­cally, this col­li­sion re­sulted in the death of a young man and our thoughts are with Ryan’s fam­ily.

“We will con­tinue to of­fer any sup­port we can and at the re­quest of the fam­ily, we are ask­ing that their pri­vacy be re­spected at this very dif­fi­cult time.

“As part of our in­quiries we are keen to speak to any­one who may have been in con­tact with Ryan dur­ing the evening of Sun­day De­cem­ber 30 lead­ing into the morn­ing of the 31st.

“Like­wise, we’d urge any­one who may have seen a sil­ver Vaux­hall As­tra in the area of the Stand­ing Stane Road dur­ing those hours to also con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Fife road polic­ing unit can be con­tacted by di­alling 101.
