Police officers are searching an area around the Leith home of a woman who went missing more than a week ago.

However, the 40-year-old has failed to make contact with friends or family since then.
She is Asian, 5ft 4ins tall, of medium build, with straight dark brown hair with a fringe, a large freckle on her right cheek and brown eyes.

"Anyone who knows her whereabouts and can assist officers in locating her is asked to come forward immediately.
"Similarly, I would urge Kal to make contact with police, family or friends as soon as possible to let us know that she is safe and well."
