Police are continuing to appeal for information from the public in an effort to trace a woman missing from her home in Govanhill, Glasgow, since Tuesday, October 18.

Janet McQueen, (58), was last seen by her neighbour leaving her home in Langside Road, Govanhill, Glasgow, around 10pm on Tuesday night.

last night, one week on from when she was last seen, officers were in the Govanhill area to speak with local residents and people who regularly walk in and around Langside Road, Cathcart Road, Pollokshaws Road and Victoria Road to seek further information which may help trace Janet safe and well.

Janet is described as white, around 5ft tall, of slim build with short black hair. She was wearing glasses, a black anorak and dark coloured trousers.

Inspector Alex Hutton, Cathcart Police Office, said today: “We know from speaking to family and friends that for Janet to be out of touch for this length of time is not like her at all. There are serious concerns for her wellbeing.

“Our enquiries have been continuing to trace Janet. Last night officers were tasked to patrol a number of streets stretching from Govanhill to Shawlands. We spoke to as many people as we can to try and develop new lines of enquiry as to her whereabouts.

“I would appeal to anyone who knows Janet, or who may have seen her since Tuesday, October 18, to call officers at Cathcart Police Office via 101. If you encounter officers on the streets of Govanhill and Shawlands, please approach them with any information you may have.”

“You may not think the information you have is much, but as part of our broader investigation it could make all the difference”

Police Scotland were unable to confirm this morning (Wednesday, October 26) as to whether this operation had generated any new leads.
