A police spokesman said the disappearance was not being treated as theft.
He said: “It is not thought at this stage that the sheep are stolen, merely wandered off and became lost.”
The force is also investigating a hit-and-run which killed a five-month-old calf.
The animal was hit by a vehicle near farmland at Craigmuie, Moniaive sometime between 5pm on March 15 and 9am the next day.
