Searches are continuing for a missing Moray woman with coastguard teams being redeployed to assist police.
Crews from Buckie, Banff, Burghead and Portsoy have all this morning joined officers looking to trace Phyllis Milne, who has been reported missing from the Quarryhill area of Keith in Moray.
The 86-year-old was last seen by a family member at 10pm on Friday.
A police statement described her as being around “5ft 6ins, medium build with grey thick short curly hair and wearing glasses.
“She is potentially wearing a beige jacket with a fur collar and hat.”
Yesterday 35 firefighters joined police and coastguard teams in a “water rescue” around Station Road but they were later stood down.
Searches for Phyllis Milne, aged 86, who has been reported missing from the Quarryhill area in Keith, have continued…
Inspector Neil Campbell said: “Our searches today are focusing around the River Isla north of Keith towards the River Deveron thanks to information we have received from the public.
“I would urge anyone who believes they saw Phyllis yesterday and has not spoken to us to come forward. Any information, no matter how small you may think it is can assist us with our inquiries.”
He added: “We are grateful to the community for their support and offers of assistance with the searches.
“Due to the terrain we are searching and the associated risks, as well as the weather conditions, we are continuing the searches with our specialist officers.
“If public searches are to be arranged, we will of course let the community know.”
