Missing Teenager Found Safe
A 19-year-old woman missing for two days prompting a police appeal has been found safe and well.
Police Scotland had initially asked for information after Louise Davidson, from Kirkcaldy in Fife, was last seen leaving Edinburgh's Espionage nightclub at about 4.30am on Tuesday.
It was believed she may have been in the company of two men and was heading towards the Underbelly venue in the Cowgate area.
However, officers said she has since been found safe and well in Edinburgh.
