The mother of a woman missing from her Edinburgh home for four weeks has appealed for information to trace her.
Laura Gorrie has learning difficulties and diabetes, and has not been in touch with friends or family since Tuesday, May 22, when she was seen getting on a train to Blackpool at Glasgow Central Station at 10.17am.
The 30-year-old was last seen trying to book into a hotel in Blackpool on Monday, June 11.
Concerns for her welfare are mounting the longer she goes without taking her regular medication.
Laura’s mother, Patricia Maguire, said: “The whole family just wants Laura to come home - we're all really worried about her.
"Laura, please just phone us, or one of your friends, and let us know you're ok."
Laura is 5ft 8 ins tall, heavy build with long brown hair and has glasses. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a red jacket, black trainers with white soles and carrying a Burberry-style bag.
Detective Sergeant Willie Falconer, Missing Persons manager at Lothian and Borders Police, said: "The aim of our inquiry is to make sure Laura is safe and well - she's not in any trouble, we're just concerned she may be ill if she has gone without medication for four weeks.
"We still think she may be in the Blackpool area so we would ask people down there to stay vigilant, and contact police if you think you have seen her since May 22."
Anyone with information can contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131, or Crimestoppers in confidence and complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
