A police helicopter and a specialist search dog have been drafted in as efforts to find a missing north-east woman continue.

Seonaid (Shona) Bacon was reported missing from the Strichen area.

The 52-year-old was last seen at around 12.10am this morning walking on the Skelmanae road, near the A98 Fraserburgh to Banff Road.

She is around 5ft 6ins tall, slim build with short white hair. She was last seen wearing a dressing gown with blue and pink spots, black slippers and grey tracksuit bottoms.

Inspector Kevin Goldie said: “It is out of character for Seonaid to not be in touch with family or friends and as time goes by we are increasingly concerned for her well-being.

“We are asking residents in the local area to please check any outbuildings, garages or sheds for signs that someone may have sought shelter there.

“Searches are being carried out in the local area including the use of a search dog and the Police Scotland helicopter.

“We are urging anyone who has information that could assist us to get in touch as soon as possible on 101.”

Anyone who may know of her whereabouts is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
