A vulnerable woman has gone missing in Ayrshire after not being seen for almost a week.

She was later reported missing to police on Thursday November 1.
Ms McCafferty is described as white, 5ft 8 inches in height and of slim build with black collar-length hair.

Sgt Simon Cumming of Irvine Police Office said: "Since Caroline was reported missing to police, officers have been carrying out searches and extensive enquiries to trace her.
"Caroline suffers from mental health issues and has been feeling low lately.
"Through our initial enquiries we have discovered that she has missed a number of appointments since she was last seen and her family and police are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety and wellbeing.
"She has not been missing before and it is completely out of character for her not to keep in contact with her family and friends.
"She is known to frequent Irvine Town Centre on a regular basis.
"At this time, I would urge anyone who has seen Caroline, or who has any information on her whereabouts to contact Irvine Police Office through 101 quoting reference number 3017 of 1st November."
