The family of Jade McGrath have issued a statement as police continue to search for the missing 19-year-old.
The statement said: “As each day goes on, we are growing increasingly concerned for Jade and we just desperately want answers and to know where she is.
“There has been a massive amount of support from friends and family, as well as people we have never met, and that is what is keeping us going.
“Anyone who was in the Leachkin area last Wednesday afternoon from around 1.45pm, please think back and if you think you might have seen anything please call the police.
“Jade is about 5ft 2in, very petite with long bleached blonde hair with dark roots and only very faint wisps of blue in the ends.

“She was wearing a khaki green parka with a fluffy hood, which went down to her thighs, black leggings and black/white Nike trainers.
“She has distinctive Alice in Wonderland tattoos on one of her forearms. On the same arm she has diamond and club symbols from a pack of cards on her fingers, as well as a small diamond tattoo on her hand.
“She had no phone or money with her and she would most likely have been in a distressed state if you saw her.
“We are grateful to everyone who has helped so far and are just desperate for news.
“If Jade is reading this, we want you to know that we love you very much and we just want you home safe.”
Further searches have been carried out today in and around the Leachkin area of Inverness as part of efforts to trace Jade almost a week on from when she was last seen.
The last confirmed sighting of the 19-year-old from Aviemore remains in the Leachkin Road area around 2pm on Wednesday, November 28.
Searches have been ongoing in and around the area, with police supported by members of the RAF and Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Teams, HM Coastguard.
Specialist resources such as police dogs and the Police Scotland helicopter have also been involved.
Officers will also be canvassing drivers and pedestrians in the area in the early afternoon of Wednesday, December 5 – a week on from the last confirmed sighting of Jade – in case they have information which could prove helpful.
Inspector James Rice said: “We are now almost a week on from when Jade was last seen and naturally her family are extremely anxious for news about her.
“We are very grateful for the continued support of the public and the numerous pieces of information which have been passed to us – you can be assured that everything passed to us is followed up.
“Despite extensive efforts and the information received from the public, the last confirmed sighting of Jade remains in the Leachkin Road area almost a week ago.
“We would continue to ask local residents to be watchful and let us know if you believe you have seen Jade last Wednesday or any time since.
“Please continue to check anywhere Jade could have sought shelter on your property, review any dash-cam footage or anything else which you think may prove helpful.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101 quoting incident 1997 of 28 November, 2018.
