• Clip shows Russian student’s last known whereabouts, at Glasgow’s Buchanan Bus Station on Friday, 7 June

Yulia Solodyankina, a 22-year-old Russian who was studying physics at Edinburgh University, was reported missing on Wednesday June 12.

The images show Miss Solodyankina inside Buchanan Street bus station in Glasgow at 4.55pm on Friday June 7.

She walks across the station’s concourse, enters a newsagent, after a minute she leaves, turns around and walks out of view below the information sign.

Miss Solodyankina took a Citylink bus to Glasgow from Edinburgh’s St Andrew Square at 3.25pm.

Chief Inspector Mark Patterson said: “The CCTV footage confirms that Yulia was in Buchanan Street bus station at 4.55pm on Friday June 7 and we continue to carry out inquiries to establish her movements after this point.

“We know that she travelled to Glasgow on a Citylink bus that left St Andrew Square bus station earlier that afternoon and we would appeal to any passengers who had contact with Yulia during that bus journey to come forward.

“Likewise we would appeal to anyone else who has seen or heard from Yulia since she was last seen in Buchanan Street to contact us.”

The missing woman, who speaks fluent English with a strong Russian accent, is described as being 5ft 6in, with a small mole on her left cheek.

Previous CCTV footage released by police shows the student walking in South Bridge in Edinburgh, close to the junction with Infirmary Street, at 2.50pm prior to her bus journey on June 7.

The footage shows her wearing a dark coat with a belt, dark shoulder bag, a red and orange scarf, grey trousers and brown shoes with white laces.
