Missing: Khalsoam Ali

“Lothian and Borders Police would like to thank the public for their assistance during enquiries to locate Ms Ali,” said a spokesman.

The disappearance of the businesswoman, who lives in Leith, more than two weeks ago was causing police increasing concern.

She had set up a shop in Leith, the Sewing Bee, where customers could rent sewing machines and make their own clothes. Neighbours said the business had not actually opened because of difficulties with signage.
