Strathclyde Police are becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of a "vulnerable" missing Glasgow woman.

Yasmin McLaughlin, 46, whose maiden name was Khan before her marriage in September, was last seen at about 19:30 on Friday.

Insp John O'Neill, of Maryhill Police Office, has appealed for information.

He said: "Yasmin relies on daily medication, which she does not have with her.

"Concern is growing for her well-being and safety and we have been carrying out an extensive search for her - and her family and friends have been assisting with that search.

"I'd like to speak to anyone who may have seen Yasmin around the area of Ruchill on Friday evening."

Mrs McLaughlin is described as 5ft 8in, slim with brown, shoulder length hair. She was wearing a black, zip-up jacket over a blue, long-sleeved, round-necked T shirt, black denims and brown knee-high boots with flat soles.

Slight limp

She is also described as walking with a slight limp.

Mrs McLaughlin is originally from the Garnethill area of Glasgow and has been known to frequent the West End.

She is also known to frequent some pubs in the city centre of Glasgow, including Times Square in St Enoch Square.

"Around 21:00 hours on Friday 1 March, a woman fitting Yasmin's description was seen within the Pond Hotel, but it has not been confirmed that this woman was Yasmin," added Insp O'Neill.

"I'd like to appeal to anyone who may have seen Yasmin to get in touch with police.

"Also, I'd like to appeal to Yasmin herself to contact police and let us know she's alright."
