A mother has gone missing from her home in Ayr and is believed to have taken her two young children with her.
Farrah Fadli, also known as Farrah Gilliespie, was last seen on Wednesday and is believed to have taken her children McKenzie Scullion, 10, and Eva Kerr, four, with her.
The 29-year-old, of Thornyflat Drive, was last seen at 11am on Wednesday by one of her friends.
Police said her disappearance is “very concerning” and are appealing for information.
Inspector Jim Hendrie said: “Farrah has never gone missing before and it is believed at this time that she may have gone missing with her two children, which is very concerning.
“Whilst at this time we don’t have any information that they may have come to harm, Farrah hasn’t been in touch with anyone since Wednesday, which is out of character.
“We’re continuing inquiries to trace Farrah and her children because as time passes, we are becoming very concerned for their welfare.
“I would ask anyone who knows where Farrah is to contact police. It is imperative that we find her and her two children safe and well.”
Ms Fadli is 5ft 4in and of slim build with dyed blonde hair. It is not known what clothes she was wearing at the time she went missing.
McKenzie is around 4ft 10in and average build with brown hair and blue eyes, while Eva is of average height and build for her age and has blonde hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
