Fresh appeal to trace woman missing for eight months
Patricia Henry, from Girvan, has been missing since November 13, 2017.
A fresh appeal has been launched to trace a woman who has been missing for eight months.
Patricia Henry, who lives in Girvan, South Ayrshire, has not been seen since November 13, 2017.
The 46-year-old previously lived in Paisley before moving to Girvan in October.
She is white, 5ft 10in, of slim build and has shoulder length hair which is usually tied back.
She has a tattoo of two clouds, outlined in blue, with a red rose and green stem with the word "Patti" on her left arm, and she usually wears a denim jacket.
Officers investigating her disappearance have been in Girvan speaking to local people and businesses in an effort to find new information.
Detective chief inspector Suzanne Chow stated that searches are still ongoing, but said she "cannot rule out that she may have come to harm".
She said: "Extensive efforts to trace Patricia are still ongoing and this was a really worthwhile initiative.
"I am also taking the opportunity to re-iterate earlier appeals for anyone with information about Patricia's movements or current whereabouts.
"Patricia has had no contact with her friends, family or other agencies and we are understandably growing ever more concerned for her well-being.
"Patricia was a real animal lover and enjoyed being by the sea. She was also a keen gardener.
"This is still very much a missing person enquiry, although we can't rule out that Patricia may have come to harm.
"Her family are distraught and are desperate for news about her. If you can help, please get in touch.
"I would like to thank the local communities of Girvan, Paisley and beyond for their help so far, we do appreciate it."
In May, Ms Henry's 18-year-old daughter, Alannah McGrory, expressed her worry for her mum.
She said: "I hope that by coming here today someone will come forward with even the smallest piece of information that can help police find my mum.
"My mum is known as Patti to most people.
"I'm worried about her. She has never been so long without getting in touch.
"If you have any idea where my mum could be or if you have seen her since she was reported missing, please let the police know.
"Mum, if you see this, please get in touch."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 3401.
