POLICE have issued a fresh appeal in the search for a missing Renfrewshire woman in the hope of giving her family closure. 

Paisley woman Patricia Henry has not been seen since November 2017 and was reported missing by her family in March 2018. 

Patricia, known to her friends as Patti, lived in Paisley before moving to Girvan, in Ayrshire. 

Despite extensive police appeals and enquiries, there have been further sightings of Patricia since that date.

Detectives now say they believe 46-year-old Patti has come to harm. 

Detective Chief Inspector Suzanne Chow of Police Scotland's Major Investigation Teams said: “Sadly, we now believe that it is very likely that Patricia has come to harm. 

"Despite her family and police making several media appeals, no-one has yet come forward with information that has been able to help us trace her.

“This is an agonising time for Patricia’s family. 

"They have received no contact from her since she was last seen. 

"We believe that if she was safe and well, she would have been in touch, in particular for family birthdays, Christmas and other key dates.  

"She was a loved daughter, mother and aunt and all her family want to know is where she is and what has happened to her. "

Patti is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, slim and with collar-length brown hair.

She has a tattoo of two clouds with a red rose and the word 'Patti' on her left arm.‎

DCI Chow continued: “Officers have carried out extensive enquiries into Patricia’s background, the lifestyle she led and who she kept in contact with as part of this enquiry. They are continuing to carry out enquiries and searches to locate her.

“Given that we now believe that Patricia has come to harm, we are appealing again for any information that could help us find Patricia and give her family some peace and closure.

"I am convinced someone has information that could help Patricia, her family and us‎. If it is you, please don't be scared to speak to us.
