A woman who has not been in touch with her family since November is being urged to come forward by the police to confirm she is “safe and well”.
Investigating officers have issued an appeal for information over the disappearance of Khasha Smith, 35, who was reported missing from the Calder area of Edinburgh on Friday.
Police Scotland said concerns were raised by her family, who have not heard from her since Saturday 4 November 2023.
Inspector Paul Thomson said: “We are growing concerned for Khasha’s welfare due to the lack of contact with family and are appealing for help to find her.”
Ms Smith is around 5ft tall, slim, and has long blonde hair and blue eyes. She also has tattoos, one of which is visible on her right wrist and says “forever”.

Inspector Thomson added: “We are not sure at this time what Khasha is wearing, but know she likes to frequent the Gorgie area of the city and may be staying with friends there.
“We are asking anyone who may have seen her, or has information on where she might be, to please get in touch.
“If Khasha herself sees this appeal, I would ask her to please make contact so we know she is safe and well.”
