Scottish Police have urged the Isle of Lewis public to search sheds and outbuildings for an Irish woman who has been missing for more than a month.
Officials say they are growing concerned for the well-being of 56-year-old Susan Forde, who checked out of the Caladh Inn Hotel in Stornoway around 5.10pm on Sunday October 16.
She then took a taxi to Borve Country House Hotel, about 15 miles north of Stornoway, where she was dropped off in the car park.
However, she did not enter the hotel and has not been seen since she arrived in the parking lot.
Susan is described as slim with blonde shoulder-length hair.
She was last seen wearing an orange top, dark jacket with white lining, blue pants or jeans, hiking boots, a cream/grey beanie and black glasses. She was also carrying a backpack.
Anyone who may have seen them or knows their whereabouts is urged to contact police.
Sergeant Donald Macleod, from Stornoway Police Station, said: “We are increasingly concerned as Susan has not been sighted or contacted since she was taxi-dropped off at Borve.
“I’m asking anyone who has seen her or knows where to get in touch. I am also asking people to check sheds and outbuildings in case Susan has taken shelter.”
Anyone who can help is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference number 1262.
