Day four of the hunt for Lynn

Section:  Dumfries and West  | Tags: , ,

A MAJOR hunt for a missing woman in Dumfries has entered its fourth day.

Police and coastguard are out again today searching around the River Nith in Dumfries for Lynn Tyeson, 48.

She has not been seen since around 3 am on Sunday morning in the Whitesands area of the town, following a night out with friends.

And concern is growing for her welfare and whereabouts.

Major searches have already taken place along the River Nith and downstream towards the Solway Estuary involving the Coastguard, Nith Inshore Rescue and Moffat Mountain Rescue. Yesterday, divers from Police Scotland’s marine unit were called in to search areas of the River Nith around the Caul and Devorgilla Bridge.

Lynn, who is from Dumfries but now lives in Cumbernauld, is slim with blonde shoulder length hair. On Saturday night she was wearing a black and white striped top, black skinny trousers, and black sandals.

Inspector Alan McGowan, who is currently managing the search, said: “We are now appealing to those who live along the sides of the River Nith to take a few minutes out to have a look in sheds and outbuildings on their property just in case Lynn has taken shelter there.

“We have a large number of officers searching along the sides of the river at this time and will be checking gardens and other areas in this search.

“We are still keen to hear from anyone who may have spoken to Lynn in Dumfries in the early hours of Sunday morning, and again would like to hear from a dog walker who had two small dogs and who was in the area of the Mill Green around this time.”

Anyone with any information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact officers via 101, quoting incident number 0868 of 29/7.
