SCOTLAND – Concern is growing for a woman who has been missing from Edinburgh for more than three weeks.
Verlaine Moodley, a 34-year-old Zimbabwean national, has no confirmed home address within the city, but is believed to have stayed at various hostels, bed-sits and with friends for a prolonged period of time.
She was last seen in the north of the city on December 3, and since then she has not made contact with friends or family and concern is now growing for her wellbeing.
Anyone with information that can help trace Verlaine is asked to contact police immediately.
Chief Inspector Richard Horan said: “It is very out of character for Verlaine not to keep in regular contact with her family, who are now growing increasingly worried for her.
“We are conducting enquiries throughout Edinburgh to trace her. However, we cannot rule out the possibility she is no longer within the city and may have travelled elsewhere.
“Those who believe they have seen Verlaine since early December, or who have information that can help establish her whereabouts are asked to come forward.
“Similarly, I would ask Verlaine to get in touch with loved ones, or with police and let us know where you are and that you are safe and well.”
Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. STV News
