The as yet unidenitified female was seen running across the A75 bypass in Dumfries yesterday evening. It is reported that she is was not wearing any clothes.

Police Scotland has raised concerns for the woman’s safety and has issued an appeal in an attempt to track her whereabouts.

“Police in Dumfries are concerned about this female due to the current cold weather conditions and want to ensure her safety as soon as possible.

“If you have any information, know who this female is or have seen her since, please can you contact us on 101.”
