Police are appealing for information to help trace a missing 62-year-old woman from Edinburgh.

Christine Thomson, who lives in Niddrie, was last seen by family in Dunbar around 7.15pm on Wednesday.

She has not been in touch with her friends or family since and concern is now growing for her welfare.

Officers are currently looking into reports she may have been near Nicolson Street at around 2pm on Thursday.

She is described as white, of medium build, 5ft 6inches tall, with grey/white hair in a short bob, brown eyes and glasses. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, black ¾ length raincoat, black trousers, black patent shoes with a bronze buckle and carrying a black handbag.

Inspector Norman Towler of Craigmillar said: “We’re conducting a number of enquiries in Edinburgh and East Lothian in an effort to trace Christine. “We’d appeal for the public’s assistance and ask anyone who believes they may have seen Christine since Wednesday evening to get in touch.

“If Christine hears this appeal I would urge her to contact us or her family, who are very worried about her, and let us know that she is safe and well.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101”
