Police have appealed for help in tracing an 86-year-old woman who was reported missing - more than two years after her family last saw her.

Mrs Raj Kaur was last seen at her family home in Pollok, Glasgow, in October 2010 as she left for the city's Sikh Temple in Berkley Street.

Strathclyde Police have been carrying out enquiries since she was reported missing last month.

The force said there were concerns for Mrs Kaur's health and wellbeing.

Mrs Kaur, who is originally from Afghanistan, is described as being of Asian appearance, about 5ft 5in tall, of slim build, with brown eyes and grey hair.

Good health

When last seen she was wearing traditional type clothing, which was long and white, and a white veil. She speaks Punjabi but not English.

She is generally in good health but suffers from high blood pressure.

Since she was reported missing, police have been carrying out enquiries with friends and family in Glasgow and in London where it is believed she may have contacts in the Southall area.

Insp Paul Quinn said: "It is unusual for Mrs Kaur to venture out on her own and certainly for her not to be in contact with her family.

"We know that she used to visit the Sikh temple/Gudwara in Berkley Street, Glasgow, but worshippers there have not seen her for sometime.

"It was thought that she may have travelled to Southall, however, this has not been confirmed."

He appealed for anyone who may know of Mrs Kaur's whereabouts to contact police.
