Missing woman Debbie Starbuck search reaches Dumfries

Debbie Starbuck Police are in Dumfries and Galloway are seeking sightings of Ms Starbuck

Nottinghamshire detectives are visiting the south of Scotland to try to trace a woman missing for more than two years.

Debbie Starbuck, formerly known as Debbie Cooper, 44, was last seen in Nottingham on 27 April 2010.

In March this year, a friend informed police that he had not heard from her since that day and was concerned.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen Ms Starbuck, or her husband Jamie, especially near Castle Douglas in May 2010.

Officers have carried out a number of inquiries in a bid to locate her but so far have found no trace.

Family members and friends have also not heard anything from her.

Leaflets and posters are being distributed around the area, featuring pictures of the couple, along with a picture of their red Citroen C3, which may have been used to travel around.

Debbie is described as white, between 5ft 4in and 5ft 5in tall and of medium build

When last seen, she had shoulder-length, brown, wavy hair.

A police spokesperson said: "We are keen to trace the whereabouts of Debbie Starbuck and do have concerns for her welfare.

"You may recognise Debbie as someone who has stayed at your hotel or hostel, or you may have travelled with her.

"If you know where she is, please let us know."
