The family of a girl who has travelled to Syria have said they knew nothing of her plans and cannot understand why she has gone.
Aqsa Mahmood has reportedly used a Twitter account under the name Umm Layth to promote terrorism.
It is understood the account has now been deactivated.
The Daily Mail reported that Mahmood, 20, from Glasgow, travelled to Syria last November.
In a statement issued through Police Scotland her family said: "We had no knowledge of our daughter's plans to leave Scotland and immediately reported her as a missing person to the Police.
"Aqsa is a studious and ambitious girl and we cannot understand why she has travelled to Syria.
"We are struggling to come to terms with the situation and we are working with the Police.
"We do not wish to make further comment at this time and as a family wish to be left to deal with this situation in private.''
Mahmood reportedly attended the private Craigholme School and state school Shawlands Academy in Glasgow.
