Police are appealing for help to find a missing 88-year-old woman.

Janet McKay, who has dementia, was last seen at noon today by neighbours in the Knightswood area of Glasgow.

She is described as white, 4ft 10ins, with a slight build and short grey/white hair. She is believed to be wearing a light cream jacket with a hood, dark trousers, dark maroon boots and carrying a brown handbag and a carrier bag.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "Janet suffers from dementia and her family and police are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety and well-being.

"Anyone who has seen her since lunchtime today or anyone who knows of her present whereabouts is asked to contact police via 101.''

She has links to Scotstoun, the city centre and Govan and may have travelled there, police added.
