AN APPEAL has been launched to find a keen walker who has not been seen since yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon.

Helen Bunney was last seen on North Berwick’s Lochbridge Road.

Police have urged members of the public to help find the 63-year-old.

Inspector Kenneth McKenzie, of Dalkeith Police Station, said: "Helen hasn't been in contact with her family for a couple of days, which is unusual, and they're becoming increasingly concerned for her.

“We know Helen is a keen walker and visits the Seacliff and wider East Lothian areas.

“Despite officers, family and friends carrying out checks of these areas, there has been no reported sightings of her.

"I'd ask anyone who thinks they may have seen Helen, or has any information on her whereabouts, to contact us as quickly as possible."

Helen is described as 5ft 7ins tall, slim, with long grey/brown hair and sometimes wears glasses.

It is not known what she was wearing when she was last seen but she usually dresses in a top and trousers.

Anyone with information should call police via 101 quoting incident number 1624 of Wednesday, May 8, 2024.
