A man has been arrested and a house sealed off in Dundee in connection with the disappearance of a woman and two children.
Avon and Somerset Police issued an appeal earlier this week to trace Bennylyn Burke and two children from South Gloucestershire.
The 25-year-old was reported missing on Monday having last been seen at her home on February 17.
Police Scotland said a 50-year-old man has now been arrested in connection with their disappearance after officers attended a house in Dundee’s Troon Avenue on Friday afternoon.
Detective superintendent Graeme Mackie, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, said: “Officers in Dundee attended a property on Troon Avenue around 3.20pm on Friday as part of an enquiry into a missing 25-year-old woman, Bennylyn Burke, and two children from South Gloucestershire.
“As a result, a 50-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this and enquiries are ongoing.
“Bennylyn’s next of kin have been made aware and are being supported by colleagues in Avon and Somerset Police.
“There will be an increased police presence in the area over the coming days and we thank the local community for their cooperation at this time.”
Anyone with concerns or information can either speak to a local officer or call 101.
