A WOMAN who has been missing for three days is believed to have links to Renfrewshire. 

Emma Faulds was last seen at around 8am on Monday in Fullarton Street, Kilmarnock, with friends and family growing increasingly worried. 

Police say the disappearance is completely out of character for the 39-year-old and say she is known to frequent Paisley. 

She is described as 5ft 3, of slim build with long blonde hair with a fringe, has a pale complexion and blue eyes.

She is athletic and was known to go to the gym regularly.

Inspector Iain Murray, Kilmarnock police office, said: “It is completely out of character for Emma to not be in touch with family and friends, she has a large circle of friends and is very sociable in nature. It has been over three days since she has last been in touch with anyone, and although this may be normal for some people, it is not for Emma.

“Our officers are carrying out a number of enquiries, including searching through CCTV footage and speaking with those who know her to try and trace her.

“She is known in the Kilmarnock, Glasgow and Paisley areas and therefore we are also working with bus companies and British Transport Police in case she has travelled.

“We appreciate that those who know Emma are worried and have already been out searching for her, however we would ask that these people liaise with police so that any searches can be coordinated. This means we can carry out searches efficiently and effectively.

“We would ask anyone who has not already spoken to police, who may have information on Emma’s whereabouts or who may have seen her in the days up to her last sighting, or have seen her since Monday to get in touch with us.

“We would also ask Emma herself to get in touch – we just want to make sure you are safe and well.”

Anyone with information is asked to phone police on 101.
