His car - a blue Toyota Aygo registration AJ60 LTU - was later seen on Monday afternoon on CCTV on the Forth Bridge in Scotland and has since been spotted in Dundee.
Enquiries are on-going to trace him.
Adrian, 58, is described as 6ft tall, with a shaven head and dark goatee beard. He was wearing black lace up shoes, a black sweatshirt and a black Harley Davidson jacket.
