Police have released CCTV footage of a woman who has disappeared from her home in Aberdeen.

Yvonne Cumming was reported missing from her home in Bucksburn on Monday.

Officers believe the 65-year-old left her address in Brimmond View on foot around 9pm on Sunday.

She was last seen around 5.30am on Monday walking at Beech Manor, with CCTV now showing her walking north towards Stoneywood Terrace.

Ms Cumming is described as around 5ft 2ins tall, of a slim build, with shoulder length brown hair and may be wearing glasses.

She was wearing a yellow puffer style jacket and light blue jeans.

Inspector Lee Jardine said: “We have released footage that was captured on local CCTV of Yvonne walking on Beech Manor towards Stoneywood Terrace at 5.30am on Monday, January 13.

“If anyone was in the area around this time and recognises the woman in these images, we would ask they contact police as soon as possible.

“There is significant concern for the safety and wellbeing of Yvonne as it is extremely unusual for her to not be in contact with friends or family.

“We are currently conducting searches in Stoneywood and the surrounding areas near the River Don with assistance from the coastguard.

“I am asking for the public’s assistance in helping us trace Yvonne and would specifically ask that any local residents check outbuildings, sheds and gardens in case she has taken shelter.

“If you have any information that could assist with our investigation, please get in contact with police.”

If you have any information on Ms Cumming’s whereabouts, contact police on 101.
