Police are appealing for help in the effort to trace a woman who has been missing from her home in Langside since Tuesday (October 18).

Janet McQueen, (58), was last seen by her neighbour leaving her house in Langside Road at around 10pm that night.

She is 5ft tall, slim with short black hair, and was wearing glasses, a navy blue anorak and dark coloured trousers.

Inspector Gary Ritchie at Cathcart Police Office, said: “Earlier on Tuesday afternoon Janet had been on a bus in Baillieston where due to the fact she seemed a bit distressed, the bus driver called police who took her home to family.

“However, it would appear that around 10pm she left her home again, this time saying to her neighbour that she was heading off to visit family – but it is unclear who in particular she was going to see.

“She didn’t take her dog with her – it is now with relatives – any money or her mobile, and so far, despite a search by officers in the area, checks via CCTV and with local bus and taxi companies, Janet has not been seen since Tuesday night.

“We have been speaking to family and friends who say that her being out of touch for this time is not like her at all, hence the cause for their concern and ours.

“Every morning, Janet usually goes to from her home in Langside Road to the Sir John Stirling Maxwell pub in Kilmarnock Road, Shawlands, for a cup of coffee and cake and sometimes later in the afternoon, the James Tassie public house, but she hasn’t been seen in either recently.

“I would appeal to anyone who knows Janet, or who may have seen her since Tuesday, to call officers at Cathcart Police Office via 101.”
