Police have asked for help in tracing a woman who has been missing from her home in Glasgow since Halloween.

Heather Campbell, 24, from the city's Maryhill area, was seen leaving her home at about 20:15 on Friday.

An acquaintance saw her getting off a bus in Maryhill Road at 13:20 on Sunday but police said that Ms Campbell did not return home.

She is described as white, about 5ft 2in tall, of slim build and has brown hair worn in a ponytail.

When seen on Friday she was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and white training shoes. She was also carrying a black handbag.

'Out of character'

It is not known if these were the same clothes she was wearing on Sunday.

Sgt Keith Connor, of Police Scotland, said: "It is very much out of character for Heather to not be in touch with her friends and family.

"She went missing on Halloween night but was seen by someone who knows her getting off a bus near to McDonald's on Maryhill Road, across from Tesco on Sunday afternoon.

"However, since then, despite extensive enquiries by officers, including specialist search officers, there have been no further sightings of her."

Sgt Connor said Ms Campbell was "known to frequent Glasgow city centre".

He added: "I would urge anyone who knows her and or where she is to contact police. I would also urge Heather herself to let either her family or police know that she is safe and well."
