THE mother of a woman missing from her home in Edinburgh for four weeks has appealed for information to trace her.

Laura Gorrie has not been in touch with friends or family since Tuesday, May 22, when she was seen getting on a train to Blackpool at Glasgow Central Station.

Laura was last seen trying to book into a hotel in Blackpool on Monday, June 11. The 30-year-old is diabetic, and concern for welfare is growing the longer she goes without medication.

Laura’s mother, Patricia Maguire, said: “The whole family just wants Laura to come home - we’re all really worried about her.

“Laura, please just phone us, or one of your friends, and let us know you’re ok.”

Laura is described as being 5ft 8ins tall, heavy build with long brown hair and wears glasses. When she was last seen she was wearing blue jeans, a red jacket, black trainers with white soles and was carrying a Burberry-style bag.

Detective Sergeant Willie Falconer, Missing Persons Manager said: “The aim of our inquiry is to make sure Laura is safe and well - she’s not in any trouble, we’re just concerned she may be ill if she has gone without medication for four weeks.

“We still think she may be in the Blackpool area so we would ask people down there to stay vigilant, and contact police if you think you have seen her.”

Anyone with any information should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131, or the charity Crimestoppers in confidence and complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
