Detective Chief Inspector Martin Fergus said: “This is a harrowing time for Emma’s family.

"They are in shock and are in the process of dealing with the fact that Emma will not be coming home.  I am therefore seeking the public’s help in trying to find Emma’s body.

“I am appealing for anyone who may have been travelling along the A714, either north or south between Girvan and Newton Stewart. Did you see something a little odd or out of place, perhaps you noticed a car in a lay by, do you remember anything which struck you as odd at the time?

“I am also keen to speak to anyone who travels this route regularly, northbound or southbound.  

"If any motorists have dash cams, please check the footage as it may have captured something which could prove vital to our ongoing enquiries to locate Emma.”
