POLICE are appealing for help following the disappearance of an Edinburgh woman five days ago today.
Mhairi Wilson was last seen in the Morningside area of the capital at 4pm on Thursday, October 29, and made contact with her family later that evening.
The 37-year-old, who lives in Leith, is described as 5ft 4, medium build, with short black hair, and was wearing a black sleeveless top, red tartan miniskirt, black tights and carrying a black rucksack on the day she was last seen.
She had a distinctive tattoo of a Star of David in a circle on her upper left arm.
A police spokesman said: “Anyone who has seen Mhairi since she went missing, or who has been in contact with her, should contact police immediately.“Similarly, anyone else who knows of her whereabouts should also get in touch.”
Anyone with information should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131, or Crimestoppers in confidence and complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
