A woman with learning difficulties who has been missing from her home in the capital for more than a week was seen getting on a bus.
Laura Gorrie was reported missing on Tuesday May 22 and has not been seen or heard from since.
Officers have since found out the 30-year-old got on a bus from Edinburgh to Glasgow on that morning before buying a ticket to Inverness. It is known not whether or not she got on the bus north.
Although she frequently travels by herself, her family are worried as they have not heard from her.
Ms Gorrie is white, 5ft 8ins tall, of a heavy build with strawberry blonde shoulder-length hair. She wears gold-rimmed glasses and was wearing a red rain jacket, blue jeans and black trainers when she was last seen. She may also be carrying a Tesco bag for life.
Lothian and Borders Police are appealing for help in tracking Ms Gorrie down.
A spokesman for the force said: "It is now more than a week since Laura was seen buying a ticket to Inverness at Glasgow Bus Station, so we are very keen to find out exactly where she is.
"We know Laura travels widely regularly, but she has not been in touch with family since the 22nd of May, and they just want to know she is safe and well.
"We are appealing to anyone who may know where she is, or who may have seen her recently, to contact us urgently."
Anyone with any information should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
