Police are appealing to trace 36-year-old Ania Karus who was last seen in the Pilton area at around noon on Friday May 5.

When she was last seen, she was wearing a green body warmer, a yellow hooded top, black leggings and a multi-coloured rucksack.

Police sergeant David South of Drylaw Police Station said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Ania’s welfare. She frequents Edinburgh city centre and tends to stay in the general area, however, it’s possible on this occasion that she may have taken a train from Waverley Train Station but where to has still to be confirmed if she has travelled. Colleagues at British Transport Police have been informed.
“We would appeal to anyone who knows where Ania may be or who may have any information that will help us trace her to get in touch.
“We’d also ask Ania herself to contact police to let us know she is safe and well.”
