A police helicopter has joined the search for a 60 year-old woman who has been missing from her Kenmore home for more than 24 hours.

'We have today issued an image of Wilma which has been captured on CCTV within Davidsons chemist shop in Aberfeldy, in the hope that someone recognises her or saw her in the area around that time.

Anton said he is also keen to trace Wilma's car, a silver Citreon DS3 - registration PY15 AYJ - which she may have had with her.

He added: "There is no information at the moment to indicate that Wilma has travelled away her home area, but we cannot rule this out.

"It is possible that the car maybe parked in a rural area or away from main roads.

"If you see the car, please call police on 101."
