Police are appealing for help identifying CCTV footage they believe might be of a woman who went missing in Edinbugh more than three months ago.

Betty Brown, 55, from Gorgie, was last seen getting off a number 3 Lothian Bus in Nicolson Street at 1155 BST on Friday 28 May.

She then crossed the street and visited the cash machine at the Royal Bank of Scotland on Nicolson Street.

The CCTV footage from Tuesday 24 August is from Sainsbury's in Stockbridge.

The images were obtained after a member of the public reported seeing a woman answering Ms Brown's description in the area on that day.

The witness saw the woman walking past the Sainsbury's store in Deanhaugh Street at 1300 BST, and making her way into Raeburn Place, where she stopped to look in the window of an estate agent.

She then turned and walked back in the direction she came, past Sainsbury's, before being lost to sight.

Police officers said they were now "anxious" for any information regarding the woman's identity.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "These images, taken from CCTV, show a woman wearing a distinctive red jacket who bears a resemblance to Betty, and we are keen to trace this woman in order to satisfy ourselves as to her identity.

"Our inquiries into Betty's disappearance continue, and we remain keen for any new information that can help us establish her current whereabouts."
