Crystalla DeanCrystalla Dean, 52, was last seen by her daughter at her home in Longsdale Crescent around 2000 hrs on Thursday 15 December 2016. 

The following day, her daughter returned home and when her mum failed to return home, she contacted police and reported her missing.

Crystalla has pet dogs and she normally walks them in a wooded area, known locally as The Witches.

The search for Crystalla continues today with Police Scotland’s mountain rescue team being assisted by partner agencies, such as HM Coastguard and the local mountain rescue team.

Crystalla has recently been dealing with some personal issues and her family just want to know she is safe and well.
