She is described as 5’10 tall, slim build with straight, collar length dyed red hair. She may be wearing a black Adidas hooded top, black North Face jacket, black running trousers and purple coloured trainers.

Sergeant Phil Winning said: "This is completely out of character for Charmain and we are growing increasingly concerned for her safety and wellbeing.

"We believe she may still be travelling in a Toyota Auris and are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the car in the Borders area, or seen someone matching Charmain's description."
