A potential sighting of a woman who has been missing since November is being looked into by police.

Khasha Smith was officially reported missing from the Calder area on Friday, January 5 after concerns were raised by her family who have not heard from her since November 4.

Police are now re-appealing for information on the 35-year-old who is described as around 5ft tall, of a slim build, with long, blonde hair and blue eyes.

She also has some tattoos, one of which is visible on her right wrist and says “forever”.

Police said that extensive enquiries are under way to trace Khasha but there have been no confirmed sightings or contact since early November.

In an update, Police Scotland added that officers are checking a potential sighting in Slateford between November 21 and November 24 2023. 

They are also reviewing any relevant CCTV footage in the hope that it will provide additional information on where Khasha has gone.

Inspector Keith Forrester said: “We are extremely concerned for Khasha. She normally maintains contact with her family and it is unusual for her to not be in touch for this length of time. I am appealing to anyone who may have seen Khasha or who may have any information which could assist us in locating her to get in touch. 

“Please don’t think what you know is irrelevant, let us decide its significance, your information could be vital in helping us trace Khasha.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 3915 of January 5, 2024.
