POLICE are appealing for help in tracing a woman who went missing from Dunfermline.

Sarah Jane Scullion, 36, was last seen in the Touch area at approximately 11:30pm on Wednesday, September 21.

She is described as being around five feet and five inches in height, medium build with shoulder-length blonde and brown hair, which she had tied up in a bun. She was last seen wearing a white padded jacket with a fur-trim on the hood, grey jogging trousers and Nike trainers. She also walks with the aid of a crutch.

Sergeant Kris Robertson said: “It is totally out of character for Sarah Jane not to stay in touch with her family and friends and we are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety and wellbeing. We are carrying out searches and enquiries in the local area to trace her as soon as possible to ensure that she is safe and well.

“I would urge anyone who has seen her, or who has any information regarding her whereabouts to contact us as soon as possible through 101 with reference number 0416 of 22 September.”
