Police divers and a remotely-operated underwater vehicle (ROV) have been brought in as the search for a woman missing continued.

Shona Johnston, 35, moved to Stonehaven from Orkney last year.

She was last seen in the Robert Street area of the Aberdeenshire town on Tuesday. Her car was later discovered near Dunnottar Castle.

She is described as 5ft 6in tall, slim, with short dark hair, and was wearing jeans and possibly a blue jacket.

Coastguard teams, an RAF helicopter, Stonehaven and Aberdeen lifeboats, and police with search dogs had earlier joined the search.

Police Scotland said there was concern for her welfare.
