The family of a missing woman who vanished almost two weeks ago said they are “bewildered” by her disappearance.

Lynn McPaul, 45, was last spotted on Dundee’s Perth Road, near to Strawberry Bank, at around 11.40pm on January 23.

Her family said “she is missed terribly” and has appealed for anyone with any information to come forward.

In a statement released on Friday, the family said: “Lynn is a home-loving mum, with a tightknit group of friends. She is missed terribly by all her family and friends, who are bewildered by her unexpected disappearance.  

“She is friendly and approachable and would go out of her way to help others. Please, if anyone has seen her or has information on her whereabouts, please contact Police Scotland.” 

Despite extensive enquiries, including support from specialist police search resources, she is yet to be found.

Investigating officers said her family are becoming “increasingly concerned” for her welfare.

Inspector Keith Anderson said: “Lynn’s family are becoming increasingly concerned as this is completely out of character and they just want her to get in touch so they know she is safe.

“We are using all the resources available to us to try to find Lynn, including officers conducting house-to-house enquiries, specialist search teams, and our local Police Scotland youth volunteers, who are assisting with leaflets.

“Extensive CCTV work is also being undertaken.

“Searches are ongoing and I am asking the community for help and urging anyone with information about Lynn, or where she may be, to get in touch.

“Please call us if you have something that may assist with our enquiries. No matter how small that information might seem, it could help.”

If you have any information, call 101.
