Woman who went missing after pro-indy march found safe

Nicola Sturgeon has urged anyone with information to Amanda's whereabouts to contact police.

A woman who went missing after a pro-independence march in Edinburgh has been found safe.

Amanda Brown from Fife was reported missing after the All Under One Banner march on Saturday.

Amanda’s daughter Shannon confirmed the news on social media.

She said: “My mum has been found safe, lost all of her belongings but has been found safe. 

“Thank you everyone for your support.”

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had earlier urged anyone who may have information about Ms Brown to get in touch with police or her relatives.

She tweeted: “If you saw or were with Amanda after the independence march yesterday, please get in touch with her daughter or the police. Her family are understandably very worried about her.”

Pro-independence group Hope Over Fear also launched an appeal on social media in a bid to trace her.

More than 100,000 people took part in the rally on Saturday, which stretched from Holyrood Park to the Meadows, although some reports put the figure closer to 200,000.
