The coastguard’s search and rescue helicopter has joined the search for a missing Highland woman.
Jacqueline Ullmer, 60, from Carrbridge, was last seen in the early hours of August 31 in the village’s Station Road but has not been seen or heard from since.
She is described as 5’6″ in height, of slim build, brown medium length hair and believed to be wearing a blue jumper and blue jeans.
Sergeant Karen Kerr said: “Jacqueline was last seen at around 1.30am yesterday morning within her home address but is thought to have left there sometime between then and 6.00am. We don’t know where she went and we are unsure of exactly of what she was wearing when she left but it is believed to be blue jeans and a jumper.
“The weather conditions in the area were poor, particularly yesterday and we don’t believe she would have been dressed for the conditions.
“We have support today from specialist resources in order to help trace Jacqueline which include the HM Coastguard’s search and rescue helicopter from Inverness, Police Scotland specialist search officers, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Mountain Rescue personnel and trained local volunteers. Community police officers have also been conducting house to house enquiries in the Carrbridge area.
“I would appeal to anyone who is in or has visited the Carrbridge area over the weekend to think back and recall if they have seen Jacqueline. If anyone who has driven through the area can check their dashcam footage to see if it has captured which direction she took would be helpful and I would also ask local residents to check their sheds, garages and outbuildings in case Jacqueline has taken shelter from the weather.
“We are very concerned for Jacqueline’s welfare and so I would urge anyone who has any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to call us in with details on 101 quoting reference 1723 of Saturday 31st August 2019.”
