She has also erected posters along the popular Mill Race Trail walking route and posted flyers through the doors of local neighbourhood, begging for more details.

Speaking on social media at the weekend, Amy said: “Today is the first I have saw the image from CCTV of Shona, she was last seen wearing a black, grey and and white puffy coat with a red scarf, wearing blue denim jeans and white trainers.
