"We are today issuing a new image of Margaret which we have been able to locate.

"Police Scotland is continuing significant enquiries into the disappearance of Margaret, and we've been thankful for the response from the public so far. I would like to make it clear that finding out what has happened to Margaret is a priority for my team here in Greenock. 

"We are currently working with limited information and whilst it does seem like this is quite an unusual missing person case, it is challenging however we've a number of lines of enquiry we are working on, and I would like to stress that this is still a missing person enquiry. 

"As we continue to try to piece together Margaret's life, we understand she kept a side of her life quite private so we're trying to look into this in a bit more detail to see if this will help with our enquiries. 

"We are working backwards to try to find out more about Margaret, so we've been speaking to friends and family members to establish a clearer picture of her life over the years.

"Again, we do know that Margaret was a student at James Watt College, Greenock, from 1996/97 therefore we'd be keen to speak to anyone who remembers her from then, and who might have been in touch with her over the years.

"I would ask anyone with any information, no matter how irrelevant it might seem, to contact police at Greenock via 101."
