POLICE are appealing for the public’s help in tracing a teenage girl reported missing from Falkirk.

Catherine Gunn was last seen around in the Bissett Court area of the town around 9.30pm on Wednesday, October 31, and was due to meet a friend.

The 15-year-old spoke with her family around 10.30pm, but has not been in contact since then and concern is growing for her welfare.

Catherine is described as 5 foot 5 inches tall, of medium build with light brown and red dyed long hair which was tied up in a pony-tail when she was last seen.

She was wearing black leggings, a black Adidas hooded top and black Adidas trainers.

Inspector Martin Vickerman of Forth Valley Police said: “We urge anyone who may have seen Catherine or who has any information on her whereabouts to contact us immediately.

“If Catherine sees this appeal, we’d also ask her to get in touch with either the police or someone she trusts as soon as possible."

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 4747 of October 31.
