Police searching for a woman missing for more than a week say she may have hailed a taxi on the night she disappeared.
Averil Shepley was last seen in the Marchmont area of Edinburgh around 10.30pm on Friday, September 30.
Officers have now revealed she may have walked to Minto Street before hailing a taxi to Queensferry Road, near to the junction of Queensferry Terrace around 11pm.
Police say they are growing increasingly concerned for the 47-year-old and urged anyone who may have seen her to get in touch.
Ms Shepley is described as white, around 5ft 7in tall, of slight build, with short dark hair. She was last seen wearing a black woolly hat with toggles on each side and black trousers.
She could also be wearing a bright pink Goretex jacket and have a black and red rucksack in her possession.
Chief Inspector Murray Tait said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Averil’s welfare and need anyone who has seen her to please contact us.
“I’m asking people in the Silverknowes, Davidson’s Mains and Queensferry Road areas to please check their dash-cams or any private CCTV cameras for any relevant footage that could help us to trace her.
“I would also say to Averil directly, if she sees this appeal, please get in touch with officers or your family to let us know you are safe and well.”
Anyone with information which could assist is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference 0090 of October 1, 2022.
