Police have launched a murder investigation after a woman's body was found in her flat in Glasgow.

Angela Humphrey, 48, was found in the flat in Quarrywood Avenue, Barmulloch, at about 16:40 on Wednesday.

Police said she lived alone and had not been seen since last Friday at about 13:00 when she was in Balbeggie Street, Sandyhills.

Detectives have appealed for witnesses to establish her whereabouts since then.

Det Insp Allan Burton, from Police Scotland's major investigation teams, said: "Relatives who had not seen her for a couple of days and concerned that she had not been in touch with them, discovered her body within her home. Ms Humphrey was last seen alive in Sandyhills

"We are obviously very keen to establish her whereabouts between last Friday and when she was found. Officers are currently carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the area and checking local CCTV to establish her last movements."

Ms Humphrey was described as white, about 5ft 4in tall, of medium build, with shoulder-length black hair.

When last seen she was wearing black-framed glasses, black trousers, black and white trainers and a cream and black three-quarter-length hooded "Parka"-type coat.

She is known to frequent Springburn Shopping Centre and a tanning salon in Springburn Way, Glasgow.

Anyone with information should contact police.
